Musée Gallo-Romain

History and tradition
Biesheim
France
In the past, the Gallo-Roman site at Biesheim and Kunheim was important due to the bridge over the Rhine. The 1st and 4th century AD was dominated by military occupation, in the 2nd and 3rd century settlers started to live there. A military camp from the 1st century AD on an island in the river Rhine that offered natural protection was used as resting point and home base for the conquest of the area of the right bank of the Rhine. The importance of the area is also documented by a castle that was built in the 4th and 5th century when the Barbarians fought there. Several pieces prove that soldiers were there, as well as other objects stemming from settlers: clothes, jewellery, kitchen objects made of Terra Sigillata, tools for handcraft and houses. The highlight of the exhibition is a cameo-brooch in gold. Funeral rituals are being exemplified on reconstructed graves.
