Reconstructed Watchtower 1/37

WP 1/137 was rebuilt on the Wingertsberg north of Oberbieber. In the district “Sandschleife” in the Heimbach-Weiser-Gladbacher-Wald (HWG-Wald), parts of the Limes have been preserved in an excellent state. Rampart and moat can be easily perceived in the area. One of the extremely rare floor layouts of a hexagonal tower was excavated at WP 1/40 “Auf der Alteck”. The enclosing walls of the small fort Anhausen at WP 1/41 can be perceived in the area as ramparts made of debris. This fort above the Neuwieder Becken is located at the northernmost point of the German Limes Road.Zwischen Neuwied und Bendorf

Forts Heddesdorf and Niederbieber

The forts in the villages of Heddesdorf and Niederbieber replaced each other. The fort in Niederbieber, which was founded at the end of the 2nd century, covered an area of over 5 hectares. Two units were probably located there. Numerous extraordinary discovered objects refer to Cavalry. The fort bath-house’s floor layout is visible above ground. There was a late Roman fortlet (Burgus) in Engers. The masonry of the central part is accessible in the basement of a residential complex.
