Via Sepulcrum

If you want to find out how people lived and died during Roman times, studying their graves is a good way to start. Items buried along with the body enable archaeologists to get a good picture of everyday life at the time. A major burial site dating from the 1st century CE was excavated in the Weisenau district of Mainz.

From the grave goods that include olives and dates, we know for example that the legionary base of Mogontiacum was supplied with produce from Southern Europe.
