Remains of Roman fort Divitia in Cologne

Remains of the Roman fort Divitia, Germany

In Köln (Cologne) there are still remains of a strong Roman fort to see. Actually the name of the district Köln-Deutz is deriving from the name of this fort called Divitia. During Roman times this fort guarded the big Rhine bridge connecting the Germanic side of the river with the Roman town Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium.
