Description

Vindonissa (from a Gaulish toponym in *windo- "white") was a Roman legion camp at modern Windisch, Switzerland. It was probably established in AD 15. In an expansion around 30, thermal baths were added. The Legio XIII Gemina was stationed at Vindonissa until 44 or 45. With the arrival of the 21st legion (XXI Rapax) the camp was rebuilt with stone fortifications. After the 21st legion had looted the countryside in 69, it was replaced by the 11th legion (XI Claudia) which remained stationed until 101. After this date, Vindonissa was a civilian settlement, with a castle built in the 4th century. These pictures show the roman theater which could sit ~10'000 --- Although 100% synthy, not all the photos have been joined correctly.

Outstanding Work! The thought, effort, planning and attention to detail are appreciated! It hardly matters if it is 100% Synthy or if every photo aligns perfectly... if it is 100% Effective.

Thank you for sharing!
