Reconstruction du Limes de Haute Germanie près du Castellum de Saalburg fortification near Frankfurt/Main. The Limes had an unfortified gate at this point which was guarded par un détachement de la garnison du Saalburg. The picture shows a section of the palisade as seen from the direction of the enemy. Immediately behind the palisade is a dry fossé et talus. The patrol route on top of the talus is approximately 10 meters away from the palisade. The person in the centre of the photo stands on the patrol route. La musée du Saalburg features a nice selection of Roman artefacts et reconstructed objects de la vie militaire et civile. There are historic reenactment events on certain weekends.
