Excitement is growing about the scale of the discovery of a military camp, in all liklihood from the end of the first century BC, along the River Lippe. It is being described as "the find of the century" by archaeologists for the Landschaftsverbandes Westfalen-Lippe (LWL).
The most significant route along which the Romans invaded into the heart of Germany, four major camps have been dicovered along the Lippe to date: Holsterhausen, Haltern, Oberaden and Anreppen. The news broke about a significant find in Olfen around a month ago (BBV had the first report).
More details are expected on Tuesday when Wolfgang Kirsh, director of LWL, and senior archaeologist Michael Rind present their initial findings.
