Discovery of Roman Battlefield Poses Historical Riddle
Archaeologists in Germany say they have found an ancient battlefield strewn with Roman weapons. The find is significant because it indicates that Romans were fighting battles in north Germany at a far later stage than previously assumed.
The wilds of Germany may not have been off-limits to Roman legions,
archaeologists announced on Monday. At a press conference in the woods
near the town of Kalefeld, about 100 kilometers south of Hanover,
researchers announced the discovery of a battlefield strewn with hundreds
of Roman artifacts dating from the 3rd century AD.
