In eastern Serbia, in the ancient Viminacium, the foundations of a large building that scientists believe could be the headquarters of the VII Claudia Legion.
For the first time, researchers learned about the remains of structures hidden underground thanks to a georadar and a magnetometer. As it turned out, the stone walls were one meter underground.
The building had 3,500 m2 area; 70 m long and 50 m wide; the building had 40 different rooms. At the moment, 800 m2 have been excavated from under the ground, and outside the walls, traces of waterworks and a fountain have been found.
What’s more, apart from the building, a large number of Roman silver coins were also discovered – denarii and antoniniani from the 3rd century CE. A total of 118 coins were mined.
IMPERIUM ROMANUM is in process of translation over 3300 Polish articles about history of ancient Rome. If you have the opportunity to financially support the further translations – even with smaller amount – I will be very grateful.
