Die Stadtgeschichte des römischen Salzburg

Befunde und Funde bis 1987

Günther E. Thüry


Based on analyses of stratigraphy and finds, this book reconstructs the history of Iuvavum, the Roman town of Salzburg (Austria). Founded as the first municAium in the northern part of the province of Noricum, this town was crossed by an important west-eastern traffic route, as well as a correspondingly important transalpine road, and thus developed into a vibrant nexus of traffic and trade. Covering some 90 acres, the centre assumed the role of ‘capital’ of northwestern Noricum.
