Roman North Gate

Foundations and the side arch of the Roman north gate are to be found on the cathedral square



The foundations of the residence of the city's Roman governor (1st - 4th century) were uncovered under the Rathaus (city hall). A visit is like "an elevator trip back to Roman times" - according to the title of a perennial best-seller on the subject. From the entrance to the Kleine Budengasse, there is also access to a waste-water canal, exemplifying the engineering skills of Roman builders.

Through Roman Cologne

Historic City Hall The journey back in time to Roman Cologne begins in front of the west side of the cathedral where the side portal of the Roman city's North Gate stands. Next, cross the cathedral square and the Roncalli-Platz for a free glance at the Dionysus mosaic in the Römisch-Germanisches Museum.

During the Double Summit in 1999, Bill Clinton, Tony Blair and Gerhard Schröder had dinner where the dining room of a Roman villa stood 1700 years ago. Steps between the Römisch-Germanisches Museum and the Diocesan Museum lead down to a Roman harbour road where you can follow the footsteps of Roman legionnaires and Germanic farmers.

The route then continues along the street known as Unter Taschenmacher in the direction of the City Hall. Impressive historical excavations in the Praetorium, the palace of the Roman governor of the city, are to be found in the cellar of the "Spanish style" part of the City Hall.

Access to a Roman sewer 100 metres long with enough headroom for a man to walk through also begins at this point. The Hohe Straße is reached via the Kleine and Große Budengasse. As early as Roman times, the well-known shopping street was the city's main axis. The Hohe Straße leads directly back to the cathedral.

Intersection of modern times and Roman, in Cologne...

the Dionysus Mosaic in situ 






What were the circumstances that led to the discovery of this mosaic? http://romanhistorybooksandmore.freeservers.com/t_cologne.htm (article by Ute Kaltwasser, editor of the “Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger”)



Here are some images of Dionysian-related mosaics from around the world, including the one in Cologne. Click on each image to see a larger view and click on the attendant URL to read about the mosaic.

Possible Assignments:

Is the mosaic in Cologne significantly different from any of the others? (it is probably bigger than the others, and uses almost 1.5 million tesserae!)

Make a list of the artistic compositions of these fragments (figures, attributes, colors, orientation, group composition, combinations of animal-mineral-vegetable-human beings.....) What qualities of life do they tend to represent? Why would anyone want such decoration in their tricilinium or peristyle (most common rooms of discoveries)


  click on the photo, a detail from a mosaic identified as Dionysios with Oceanus and Thetis for a larger view. This is taken from http://www.artnet.com/magazine/features/acar/acar8-28-00.asp, a webpage devoted to the archaeological site of Zeugma, and a discussion of the difficulties in preserving ancient mosaics, mostly because their value makes them attractive to thieves. Zeugma has the additional problem that its precious archaeological site is about to be inundated.

What event very significant to Cologne's history occurred in 50 A.D.? answer




Why did Rudolph Pörtner entitle his 1967 book about Roman Germany "Mit dem Fahrstuhl in die Römerzeit" (By Elevator into Roman Times)? 

Who was the Roman general who extended the borders of the Roman Empire as far as the Rhine in 54/53 BC and made an alliance with the Germanic tribe of the Ubii? Gaius Julius Caesar. Find his portrait on this page: http://lilt.ilstu.edu/drjclassics/italy/VaticanMuseum/busts.shtm

Who resettled the Ubii from one side of the river to the other and founded the "oppidum Ubiorum"? Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa (son-in-law of Augustus)

Find a photo of the Monument of the Ubii, the oldest square stone masonry ever found north of the Alps (24 B.C.). provide sites

Who did Julia Agrippina, daughter of the Roman general Germanicus, marry in 48 AD? Find his portrait on this page...then read about his marriage to Agrippina and his unhappy reign in the on-line encyclopedia, De Imperatoribus Romanis (http://www.roman-emperors.org/claudius.htm)



In 48 A.D., Emperor Claudius married Julia Agrippina, daughter of the Roman general Germanicus. She had been born and brought up in Cologne. In 50 A.D., she granted her birthplace the rights of a Roman city. From then on it bore the name Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium (CCAA), i.e. the Claudian colony of the Agrippinensi, site of the imperial altar. With this official ceremony, Agrippina laid the foundations for the first period of prosperity lasting almost 400 years for this north-eastern corner-stone of the Roman Empire. Traces of this period can be found everywhere in modern day Cologne. The first city wall was built in the form of a square with sides about one kilometre in length. Even today, large sections of the wall can still be seen. An 80-kilometre-long aqueduct supplied the city with fresh spring water from the nearby Eifel Hills, and an underground sewage system provided the city with a drainage system that would not have seemed out of place today.
In the area of road-building, too, the Romans demonstrated their talents for developing civilisation. Cologne was directly linked to the Empires trunk road network. Hohe Strasse, the city's high street, then and now, has an unchanged course and is now Cologne's best-known shopping street.
