CARNUNTUM – Reborn City of the Emperors
After the establishment of the roman military fortress, originally built from wood and earth, the fortifications were upgraded to stone in the Claudian period around 100 AD. In the following decades, the city experienced an economic boom as well as being the focus of turbulent events.
During the Marcomannic wars Emperor Marcus Aurelius spent several years in Carnuntum. In the year of the civil war, 192 AD, the provincial governor Septimius Severus was proclaimed emperor by his troops. A golden age for the city and province followed.
