3D-recon­struc­tion Baden burns 69 AD (2016)
for the Archaeo­lo­gi­cal Ser­vice of Can­ton Aar­gau and the Vin­do­nis­sa-Muse­um

The sett­le­ment around the ther­mae district are bur­ned down for the spe­cial exhi­bi­ti­on «Kampf um Neros Erbe – die Hel­ve­tier zwi­schen den Fron­ten» in the Vin­do­nis­sa-Muse­um in Brugg / Switz­er­land.

This pic­tu­re is based on the recon­struc­tion of Baden around 200 AD for the Histo­ry of the city of Baden (in coöpe­ra­ti­on with Joe Roh­rer).

After Nero’s sui­ci­de, four emperors were figh­ting for the roman thro­ne. 68/69 AD Hel­ve­tii and Legio XXI Rapax, sta­tio­ned in Vin­do­nis­sa, go to war against each other. As an act of ven­ge­an­ce the legio burns down Baden.
