The remains of a 78-meter-long building have been discovered in the Roman camp of Xanten on the Rhine. Archaeologists concluded that it must have been a kind of hotel or inn at the time. The rooms in it are not only guest rooms, but also a bathhouse, bar, latrine or own garden.
Some interiors were attempted to be reconstructed using the remains from other places of this type. The photo shows a reconstructed “hotel” room for three. The beds were most likely placed as shown in the photo: two along the longer wall and one on the shorter wall. The furnishings were modest: a table (a popular pattern on three legs with a lion’s head and paw motif), a chest for clothes, a chair.
