 Römisches Reiterkastell Aalen - Nordostecke

Das Kastell Aalen war mit ca. 6 ha Fläche das größte römische, Reiterkastell nördlich der Alpen. Die hier stationierte Ala II Flavia miliaria stellte mit ihren 1000 Soldaten die größte und bedeutendste Truppe am gesamten Limes, der nördlich von hier etwa 5 km
entfernt verläuft. Das Kastell wurde um 160 n. Chr. gegründet und
bestand bis ca. 260 n. Chr. Die gesamte Anlage yon 277 x 214 m
Fläche liegt auf einem nach Südosten geneigten Hang. Das Kastell
war von einer ca. 6 m hohen Wehrmauer mit Zwischen- und Ecktürmen'sowie mehreren Kastellgräben umgeben. Im Inneren standen 12 große Doppelbaracken für die Soldaten und ihre Pferde,
das zentrale Stabsgebäude, das Wohnhaus des Kommandanten
und mehrere Magazin- und Wirtschaftsbauten.

Sie stehen hier vor der Nordostecke des Lagers. Entlang der heutigen St. Johann-Straße zog sich die Nordfront des Kastells bis zur
heutigen Stadthalle. Vor dem Limesmuseum sind die Reste des
linken Seitentores erhalten.

Roman cavalry fort Aalen - north-eastern corner

With an area of around 6 hectares, the fort at Aalen was the largest Roman cavalry
garrison north of the Alps. The Ala II Flavia miliaria stationed here comprised of
1,000 soldiers and was the largest and most important troop on the whole Limes
which passes about 5 km. from here. The garrison was founded around 160 AD and
remained in existence until around 260 AD. The whole garrison measuring around 277
x 214 m is situated on a south-eastern slope. The fortress was surrounded by a 6-m
wall with corner and intermediate towers as well as a number of entrenchments.
Inside the walls there were 12 large double barracks for the soldiers and their horses,
the central principia or headquarters, the residence of the commander and a number
of magazine buildings and outhouses.

You are standing at the north-eastern corner of the garrison. The northern front of the
fort ran along the present-day St. Johann Strasse to the present-day Stadthalle.
The remains of the left-hand side gate are on display in front of the Limes museum.
