Title: At the gates of Strasbourg: long-term occupation at the site on route des Romains, Koenigshoffen
The excavation carried out in 2018 at 2 route des Romains on the former site of the Koenigshoffen ASPTT sports complex showed a long-term occupation of the site from the 1st century to the late Middle Ages. Traces of activity and settlements dating back to the end of the 19th century or the beginning of the 20th century were also identified during this excavation. The site, particularly affected by earthworks carried out at the end of the 1960s during the building of the ASPTT sports complex, particularly brought to light the eastern boundary of the necropolis for soldiers of the Augustan legions II and VIII, a new potters’ district, previously unknown traces of settlements from the Late Roman Empire and the Middle Ages and signs of occupation from after the 1870 Franco-Prussian war in the non-constructible areas of the Strasbourg fortifications.
