To my mind there is no rhymn nor reason about which archaeological discoveries in Germany get picked up by the British press. The Battle on the Harzhorn has had pretty much no coverage in English at all, even though the discoveries are wonderful, the battle is dateable and it is connected with a Roman emperor.
And yet the announcement, a couple of weeks ago of a Roman camp near Hachelbich in Thuringia, has captured the imagination. This morning there was a large piece in the Daily Mail:
Archaeologists have been searching for signs of a Roman military presence in eastern Germany for centuries. And now researchers believe they have made the long-awaited discovery of what appears to be a military camp, near the town of Hachelbich in Thuringia. Located in a valley, the temporary camp measures 18 hectares (180,000 square metres) and is thought to have housed 5,000 Roman troops.
Thanks to CM for pointing out that I had not linked to the initial press release. For those with German it is as detailed a read as we have at the moment. Even without German the photos are especially hi-res. See it here.
