About the book

One of the greatest accumulated finds of Roman military equipment ever has occurred in Denmark in the Illerup Ådal near the town of Skanderborg. It was in this valley in the second century AD that warriors from Jutland placed as a sacrificial thanks for their victory, the weaponry of their defeated enemies.

Excavations lasting many years resulted in more than 15,000 items being found. Through the systematic analysis, registration and identification of each individual item, it has been possible to track most of the weapons back to the independent Germania or to the Roman Empire. How the weapons found their way to Illerup from those regions remains a mystery. Perhaps they were spoils of war gathered by the Germanic tribes during their border skirmishes along the northern flanks of the Roman Empire?

Volume 8, Die Prachtausrüstungen, Grabungsdokumentation und Fundliste which is now available, presents maps and plates of the excavation area, together with additional material which has been introduced in the previous seven volumes.
