3D-Reconstruction Baden burns 69 AD (2016)
for the Cantonal Archaeology of Aargau and the Vindonissa Museum
For the special exhibition “Struggle for Nero’s heritage – the Helvetians between the fronts” in the Vindonissa Museum, the settlements adjacent to the bathing quarter were set on fire.
The picture is based on the reconstruction of Baden around 200 AD for the City History of Baden (in coöperation with Joe Rohrer).
After Nero’s suicide, four emperors fought for the Roman throne. 68/69 AD, conflicts arose between Helvetians and the 21st Legion (Rapax) stationed in Vindonissa. As revenge, the Legion burns down Baden at that time.
