Life in a Roman town

Until 260 A.D., the Roman town of NIDA stood in the north of what is now Frankfurt. Thanks to the extensive excavations, we can envisage homes, a market place, a theatre, public baths, craftsmen's ateliers and sites of religious worship. Nowadays, the ancient town is built over; archaeological finds can be viewed in the museum.
