Stones for Basel – An exciting find in the heart of Basel poses a mystery. We head to Augusta Raurica in search of clues.
The Heritage Days took place on 9 and 10 September 2023. The next Heritage Days will take place on 7 and 8 September 2024.
The Archäologische Bodenforschung Basel-Stadt made an exciting discovery in 2022: During the renovation of Freie Strasse in Basel's centre, an ornamentally carved stone weighing around 700 kg was discovered. In all likelihood, it originally adorned a Roman temple in Augusta Raurica.
In collaboration with the Basel archaeologists, we plan to examine the stone more closely and piece together its history. We'll also make comparisons with other items in our remarkable collections store.
