File:Cyark Weissenburg Reconstruction.jpg


Description Historical Reconstruction of the Roman Baths in Weißenburg, Germany, using data from laser scan technology. These baths are a major remnant of the local Roman garrison, vicus Biriciana, whose duty was to protect the northern border of the province Rhaetia (Upper Germanic Rhaetian Limes). The baths that served the garrison, dating from 90 BCE to 259 CE, are located at the edge of the modern city of Weißenburg in Bavaria. Discovered in 1977, they are among the very few such Roman archaeological remains to be preserved on German soil. This historic restoration is based on what the Roman Baths of Weißenburg would have looked like in their final phase of functionality. Smoke rises where slaves fanned the fires from small pits in front of the air shafts, using wood and charcoal, and the hot air escaped into the two lukewarm baths. The baths were heated day and night, as it would have taken several days to reheat a bath once it had cooled down.
