Spot on! - Scenes of a roman city

Modern research assumes that there were about 2000 ancient cities in the former Roman Empire. Using archaeological objects and elaborately staged film scenes, the exhibition sheds light on life in a Roman metropolis.

The touring exhibition shows scenes from the life of a Roman metropolis using the example of the Moselle metropolis Trier, because Trier has all the facets of an ancient cosmopolitan city.

Archaeological exhibits and vivid illustrations focus on "snapshots" of Roman city life. A highlight of the show are short films which, in combination with original objects, tell the story of people from the big city.



Due to the current situation in 2020, public guided tours in the LIMESEUM will no longer take place.
