When we think of the Romans and their buildings we usually think of huge structures like the theatres in Italy or France or possibly large arches like the Porta Nigra in Trier. But they also left a lot of smaller vestiges in the countries they lived in. We know that the Romans travelled up and down the Upper Rhine Valley, crossing larger and smaller tributaries of the Rhine. Close to our town they built a bridge to get over a small river. It’s pretty unspectacular but it’s close to 2000 years old and it has been maintained throughout all the years by the people living and working in the area.
