Ancient Roman Defensive Wall Discovered

Ancient Roman Defensive Wall Discovered

An exciting archaeological discovery was made during construction work in Aachen’s city center, Germany. At the corner of Pontstrasse and Marktplatz, archaeologists found an ancient Roman defensive wall from the 3rd century.

As part of a construction project, archaeologists were excavating a street close to the historic city center when they discovered a wall that had collapsed, according to city officials. The wall was immediately recognized as an ancient Roman construction.

The uncovered wall segment, measuring 23 feet long and three feet thick, hints at a broader fortification yet to be fully explored.

This fortification, used until the 12th century, played a pivotal role in shaping Aachen’s layout, including the iconic Market Square.
