When excavating the Roman legionary camp Vindonissa, situated in Windisch in the canton of Argovia, in 2003 archaeologists hit upon the kitchen area of the villa of a Roman centurion. At the spot where this Roman kitchen was discovered – which has been shielded with protective structures in view of its archaeological significance – visitors can now experience a banquet at the house of a high-ranking officer. Digitally reconstructed spaces, in which 40 figures kitted out in Roman gear have been assembled, serve as a window opening on the past. In the form of a light show – sometimes in 3D – and without spending many words on it, they demonstrate to the public the current state of archaeological knowledge about life in the camp of Vindonissa 2000 years ago.
