Holzheim – Roman wall

Description

This earth wall lined with beech trees is said to be a remnant of a Roman army camp.
In some places, the wall and its trench are up to 8 m wide, and can be made out easily in the terrain over a length of about 200 metres. Its vertex is between 1.5 and 2 metres. In an area to the right of the wall, some 700 m long and 400 m wide, there are also said to be remnants of a former fortress. However, that supposition still needs to be confirmed by future excavations. The wall has been listed as historical monument since 6 July 1998.
Finds from the immediate vicinity include shoes from a mule and clay fragments, which have been dated back to Roman times.
