Roman Villa Borg
Roman Villa Borg is a reconstruction of an ancient Roman villa
that once stood here near modern Perl, Saarland in Germany.
In the early 20th century the site was discovered by a local
teacher Johann Schneider who started his private digging in the
local mounds that stood out from local plains. There was no in
depth exploration of the ancient site due to World War One and
Two. Only in the 1980's did scientists got a chance to explore
the historic settlement.
Subsequently archeologists uncovered a private residence of a Roman nobility
that date back to the second century AD. Additionally to the
antiquity tools from the Beaker culture that date back to the
Neolithic and Chalcolithic periods were discovered here. Since
that an ancient mansion was reconstructed. This included gardens
that once surrounded this prosperous residence. Pollen
discovered here gave historians an idea on what type of plants
were raised here. Every year a Roman Day is held here in the
first week of August. Reenactment of the period, including
horsemanship, Roman drill soldiers are held here.
