Fabulously extensive

The collection at Augusta Raurica

2,000,000 Roman finds, more than 110,000 photographs, plans and diaries from the 19th century, a specialist library with 15,000 volumes: all this forms part of the archive at Augusta Raurica.

The collection aims to maintain these cultural treasures to create a collective memory store for us all, to research the heritage and to make it publicly accessible. Besides numerous potsherds, stones and coins, there are also unique precious items that have a monetary value or are particularly fragile and form the indispensable jewels in the collection.

Other Roman finds from Augusta Raurica are listed in KIM-BL, the digital catalogue of cultural goods from Canton Basel-Landschaft. Numerous objects and drawings, theatre sketches and old photographs can also be found in the virtual library of the Europeana Collections.
