roman fort Rettert

Today I found a old post I wanted to view you in the summer but forgot and post it now.

I was on a Roman milefort in Rettert. The limes there is called Obergermanischer Limes.

It was never totally excavated and you can see the structure of the small fort very well.


Like all forts this one has 4 ports:

  1. Nice photos of the fort, where exactly is it located?.
    Your Romans look really good, I've decided on Republican instead of Imperial as I think there is a better variety of enemy.

    I will upload some more photos of historical places especially in Crete.

    Yes RR have some more enemies, a good combination are LRR and so I have 3 legions of them. *freak*
