Further interesting discoveries are being made in the Rhineland (western Germany), which is rich in brown coal. In ancient times, the borders of the Roman Empire reached here. Roman cities included: Cologne, Aachen, Bonn and Jülich.

Massive coal mining threatened the preservation of still uncovered remains from ancient times. For this reason, archaeologists first work on the site designated for mining to check whether there are any ancient finds hidden underground. In this way, experts discovered, among others: grave of a Roman priestess in Borschemich, near Cologne. Archaeologists also found a folding chair and a wooden chest with sculptures of Roman and Egyptian gods. Researchers also discovered a Roman well in Hambach. According to researchers, in the center of the well there was a pillar with a sculpture of Jupiter.

Hundreds of artifacts have been discovered in the region and have been unearthed over the past decades. Many more are expected to be brought to the surface shortly.
