According to scientists, the Romans, during their military actions against the Germans, especially at the end of the 2nd century CE, repeatedly reached the territory of the modern Czech Republic. Another proof of this is the Roman camp, the traces of which were discovered in 2018.

The discovery took place in Brno, in southern Moravia (Czech Republic); archaeologists found the remains of a Roman temporary camp. Analyzes have shown that the camp was probably built between 172 and 180 CE when the Romans waged a counter-offensive against the Germanic tribes, led by Marcus Aurelius. At that time, the territories of today’s Bohemia were inhabited by the tribes of the Quads and Marcomanni, which created strong states that really threatened the Roman Empire from the north.

In the territory of present-day Moravia, there are remains of several Roman camps: in Modrice, Musov, Olomouc and Jevícko, most of which were of a temporary nature. The exception is the Roman camp in Musov, where several stone structures were discovered, suggesting a longer stay of Roman soldiers.

All the artefacts discovered in the Brno camp can be seen on display in the Brno city museum.
