Musée Gallo-Romain

History and tradition
Biesheim
France
The Gallo-Roman site of Biesheim and Kunheim owes its importance to its privileged location near a compulsory Rhine crossing point. Military occupation is paramount in the 1st and 4th centuries AD ; an urban agglomeration develops in the 2nd and 3rd centuries. A military camp of the 1st century, installed on an island of the Rhine which ensured its natural protection, served as an operational base for the conquest of the Agri Decumates. In the 4th and 6th centuries, during the barbarian invasions, a fortress testifies to the essential role of the site. Various military objects prove the presence of soldiers. Domestic objects offer a very complete panorama of the daily life, through the adornments, the common tableware, the Samian-ware ceramics, the objects related to the craft industry and to the home.
