Frequently Asked Questions...

What Roman artifacts have been found in Austria?

Best Answer...


The name of the small town of "Carnuntum" doesn′t just sound Latin, it is: This community was once the most important Roman settlement in the province of Pannonia. Highlights inside and outside the civil town include a chunk of the Limes road and wall, public baths and two large amphitheatres. However, the ultimate highlight of Carnuntum and its trademark is the "Heidentor" ("Pagan′s Gate"). This enormous triumph arch was built outside the town and now stands in the middle of the fields.

The largest Roman museum in Austria, the Archaeological Museum in Carnuntinum showcases stunning Roman artifacts which include coins, jewelry, arms, exquisite paintings and pictures of worship.

A highlight of your journey back to Roman times is a visit to the Museum Carnuntinum in Bad Deutsch-Altenburg. The "treasure house" of the Archaeological Park Carnuntum was built by the architect Friedrich Ohmann in the style of a Roman country house and it was opened by Emperor Franz Joseph in 1904.

One can marvel at unique finds from ancient Carnuntum here. Jewellery, tools, arms and cult objects have been restored with attention being paid to the smallest detail, so the treasures that have survived from Roman times can thus be admired.

Archaeology elicits information from the ground about the culture and life of people in past ages. During excavation the ground is searched for finds which help to date the relevant layer. Remains of walls are cleaned and left standing. Only after cleaning can signs of human intrusion be seen because of soil discolouration or other material.

Excavations involve planning, implementation and documentation as the basis for further evaluation and publication. Only then can presentation of the finds take place in the form of conservation, restoration or else reconstruction. During excavation the material in the individual horizons is loosened with digging implements and examined for objects (pottery, glass, etc.) in order to date the level being excavated. The surface which is still dirty, well-trodden or dried out is cleaned with small trowels and brushes. Only then can human signs in the soil (former pits, post holes, trenches for thresholds, stoves, trenches for wall foundations, drains) be distinguished because the soil has a different colour or other material is visible. Removal of individual layers causes vertical profiles on the edges of the excavated area. These function as an important check on the different layers and finds. An archaeological excavation ends deep down where undisturbed levels of soil are be found.

Artifacts: Tombstone of Titus Calidius Severus, optio of the Fifteenth Legion, depicting a horse and armor, found in Carnuntum. Statue of the god Jupiter Dolichenus. Heidentor (pagan gate). Roman city quarter and The house of Lucius. Palace ruins.
