Museum Quintana

The archeological museum (Archäologisches Museum) shows the findings of the first human presence in the German village Künzig from the fifty century BC onwards, when hunters and nomads gradually became farmers. The biggest treasure from the first period of settlement is the excavation of a huge burial site with 30 000 potsherds and bones. About 90 AD, a Roman military castle was built. The collection contains many objects from this period, including Roman military diploma’s inscribed in bronze certifying that the holder was honourably discharged from the Roman armed forces and had received the Roman citizenship. A sensational discovery was made in 2003: s small wooden amfitheater could be traced. A model shows the seize and shape.
