Map / Archäologiepark Belginum

Opened in 2002, the museum is now the heart of the Belginum archaeology park. It is situated right in the centre of the antique settlement and provides vivid insights into the past life along a major road in Celtic and Roman times. Which food did the inhabitants eat? How did the water supply work? Which tools did the people have? Questions like these are answered and illustrated with the help of original finds.
The village “Vicus Belginum” is sited next to the “Ausoniusstraße”, a Roman road from Trier to Bingen named after Roman poet Decimius Magnus Ausonius. Half a dozen of antique cult sites were situated around this settlement. Furthermore, a temple district, a military camp and a burial ground were verified. Due to the display of single grave-finds, the otherwise strange people of ancient times come to life in the minds of visitors. Visitors obtain detailed information on the conditions of living and the everyday life alongside the Roman road. At the same time it is attempted to provide an insight into the field work and methods of an archaeologist: How does aerial archaeology work? Why do archaeologists search for litter? Regularly changing special exhibitions on 100 sqm add to the overall picture.
