Saalburg Fort Shows Life in Roman Germany

Visitors to Saalburg's reconstructed Roman fort get a first-hand view of what life was like for a Roman soldier in 3rd century Germany.

Emperor Antonius Pius greets visitors who walk through the gate of a reconstructed Roman fort in the Taunus Mountains of Germany. The original wooden fort was constructed in the 3rd century C.E. to guard the Limes, the northeast boundary of the Roman Empire. The current reconstruction depicts the fort as it would have been in the 3rd century CE.
