Excursions

Getting to know monuments and the topography of ancient sites is one of the main objectives of the study of Archaeology. For this reason, the institute organizes excursions to places outside of Germany that used to be part of the Roman Empire. Aside from this, short excursions to excavations, museums, and recent exhibitions are often offered. These excursions are co-funded by the university. They are considered a very intensive form of education and are closely linked with the lecturer. Multiple participations are recommended.

Westalpen 2018

Vom 30.7. bis 8.8.2018 führte das Institut eine Exkursion in die Westalpen durch. Der Reiseweg führte uns von der Westschweiz über den Großen St. Bernhard ins Aostatal, über den Kleinen St. Bernhard in die Savoyer Alpen und via Genf sowie den Schweizer Jura zurück nach Köln. Dabei konnten wir u.a. römische Städte (z.B. Avenches oder Aosta), Villenanlagen (z.B. Vallon oder Orbe), das Passheiligtum auf dem Großen St. Bernhard und zum Schluß auch das spätantike Castrum auf dem Breisacher Münsterberg besichtigen. In den verschiedenen Museen war es möglich, das reiche Fundgut der Region, das von der Qualität her mit mediterranem Fundgut locker mithalten kann, umfassend zu studieren.
