Saalburg Roman Fortress

In Roman times,the Saalburg fort kept watch over a section of Limes in the Tuanus hills. Did you know that many as 2000 people may once have lived in the fort and the village? Thats alot of fighting men.

The reason the fort was here was to protect the Roman empire from the German tribe people.

The most interesting thing I saw was horse shoes because  they are big and bulky and covers the hole foot of the horse.

I saw the barracks where the men used to sleep. I think it would have been really horrible. They had only bags of straw to sleep on.
