Wednesday matinee: The lead coffin from Augusta Raurica

On 13/07/2022
During the guided tour, archaeologist Michael Baumann (supervisor and author of the scientific publication on the lead coffin) will give participants an in-depth insight into the special exhibition "Under the magnifying glass. On the trail of a Roman life story" and into the scientific processing of this extraordinary find.

Monique Burnand (cultural mediator) will present the background to the workshop she conceived for this exhibition: "Cult and Herbs - Mixtures for the Afterlife". The workshop grew out of an attempt to reconstruct the contents of the vials deposited in the lead coffin as grave goods.

Participation from 16 years.
