Children? Children! Searching for traces in Augusta Raurica

14.03.2013 - 31.01.2019

Who were the children of Augusta Raurica? What kind of childhood did they have? Did they have toys? Did they go to school? Or did they, like the adults, have to work? During the town's heyday, some 15,000 people lived in Augusta Raurica. One third were less than 15 years old! However, evidence attesting to children and adolescents is rarely found. The exhibition traces the youngest inhabitants of Augusta Raurica and provides an exciting insight into their everyday lives 2000 years ago.
