Die 3D-Rekonstruktion des römischen Forums von Ladenburg Beschreibung und Begründung der NachbildungForschungen und Berichte zur Archäologie in Baden-Württemberg
The centre of the Roman town of Lopodunum was dominated by a complex of buildings consisting of a forum and a basilica, which was characterised by its enormous area and volume. However, apart from remnants of the foundations, only very few remains of the buildings have been preserved in the medieval core of today's Ladenburg. This treatise explains the considerations that have led to the virtual 3D reconstruction of the ancient forum as it is presented today in the Lobdengau Museum in Ladenburg. In addition to a discussion of the reconstruction approaches, perspectives for further scientific analyses of the historically important Roman building complex are presented.
