Two legionaires holding watch over the camp. In the background the signifer and a third legionaire are passing through.


Taken during the "Römerfest" in Hüfingen (Germany), a former founding by the Romans who had built there a castle (around the years 37 to 45 AD), bath and other buildings which later developed into a small town then known as "Brigobannis". The castle was part of the Danubian Limes in the province of Germania Superior (number 41 on this map: [link] ).

Stamped bricks mark the Roman bath to be one of the oldest military baths north of the Alps - it was built around 69 to 101 AD by soldiers of the Leg XI CPF which was mostly stationed in the province Helvetia (Swizerland) - headquartered in Vindonissa (Windisch) - but also manned outposts along the limes in Germania Superior and Raetia.

Das Photo bringt eine beiindruckende Stimmung rüber.. der Dampf (von kochendem Wasser?) schaut aus wie Nebel und mit der Farbe des Himmels im Hintergrund mag man den Eindruck gewinnen, es sei früher Morgen bei Tagesanbruch.. Herrlich!

Für mich ist es das beste Bild aus deiner Römer-Serie :aww:

Vielen Dank.

Freut mich, daß es dir so gut gefällt. Der Dampf ist übrigens der Rauch von einer Feuerstelle, an der sie ihr Mittagessen zubereitet hatten, aber mir gefällt deine Interpretation bedeutend besser :)
