The first post on this visit focused on the military artefacts seen in the Roman Museum.

In the second part I have covered the really interesting reconstructions and investigative work carried out at the park to reveal more about the Romans in Colonia Ulpia Traiana, plus a very famous item that is the only certain archaeological evidence of the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest.

Now think – every one of those windows likely held a 3 span bolt thrower or a manuballista.

I visited the site in July 2014. It is a great place to visit. Highly recommended.

Great photos, and you put a LOT of work into your web-tour for us to enjoy.

Thanks for your comments chaps. I am really pleased you enjoyed the read.

Putting these kind of posts together takes a bit of time but is a lot of fun as I get to learn stuff I might not have instantly taken in at the time, so everyone's a winner.

Cheers

If you find yourselves in the vicinity, a visit here is well worth a detour.

I've been regularly visiting a small town nearby for more years than I care to remember and have visited the site twice; still plenty to see. Maps and dioramas can convey only so much.
