Roman military camps found on Austrian amber road

The discovery of three Roman military camps "will rewrite the history of the Romans in Austria," said Stefan Groh, the leader of the Austrian Archeological Institute team which discovered the camps near Strebersdorf. The sites were found on the amber road, the ancient trading route which runs through the country.

Archaeologists used geo-radar and geo-magnetics to locate the camps, which, they believe, will provide a great deal of information about the Roman presence in Austria.
