Saalberg is a reconstructed Roman Fortress on the Limes line. Built under Hadrian it is reconstructed as it would have been in the late 2nd century.

I am an archaeologist who has worked all over the western U.S. for about 35 years. Been doing photography longer than that. Mainly do it for my own enjoyment but hope you enjoy some of it as well.
