Saalburg Roman Fortress Museum

Today we went to Saalburg Fortress. The fortress was built as one of the fortresses along the mountainside keeping the tribes of wild hill people out of Rome. This formed part of the huge wall that protected Rome.

They also built baths here. They weren't the baths that we have in our bathroom. They were big swimming pool things that were heated. We saw a model of it. It looked like the one that we saw in Bath in the UK.

We saw the bakehouse places. They were like big pizza ovens. They did all their cooking there for all the troops.

We saw the barracks where the soldiers slept. It looked really rough. They had to sleep on beds made from hay. That would have been scratchy.
