Steinkammergrab St. Aldegund

Stone chamber tomb St. Aldegund

Take a look at these heavy stone slabs: the Romans spared no effort to protect the resting place of the dead, which here they succeeded in doing for centuries. In this stone chamber they buried a woman, whom they wrapped in a precious brocade robe and furnished with rich grave goods for her final journey. Did she come from the estate that was discovered nearby? Or from the late Roman hilltop settlement on the Hangelenberg? There is no inscription that could tell us anything more about her. But the grave goods are remarkable, especially the blue glass vessel in the shape of a ship. You can admire it today in the Landesmuseum at Ehrenbreitstein Fortress in Koblenz.

Perhaps the Roman lady regularly visited the nearby temple complex on the Calmont? She will certainly have been grateful for the high fortifications on the Petersberg diagonally opposite, which offered some protection from marauding barbarian hordes. The Mosel valley was an important traffic artery used by many travellers. By the way, wine was also made here then. Perhaps she also enjoyed a glass of wine?
