ROMAN LIME KILNS

SPECIALISTS OF THE LEGION

The largest known Roman lime kiln complex in the Imperium Romanum is located near the northern corner of the legion camp and was operated by specialists of the legion. The best-preserved kiln is 4.2 metres high and can be visited in a protective building. A multimedia presentation vividly explains lime production and its significance for the outstanding Roman building technique.

The protective structure can be visited free of charge.

The largest known Roman lime kiln battery of the Imperium Romanum is located near the northern corner of the Lauriacum/Enns legionary camp. The best-preserved kiln can be visited free of charge from Easter 2020 in a specially constructed shelter.

With a height of 4.2 metres and a capacity of 31 cubic metres, it is a particularly impressive testimony to the creative power of the Roman legionaries. Under the supervision of specialists, a total of 12 such furnaces were operated here from the late 2nd century AD. Such mass production could only be surpassed by industrial lime production in the 20th century.

A multimedia presentation gives visitors an impression of the excavations and the lime-burning technique. In addition, the building material lime and its significance for the outstanding Roman building technique are vividly explained. The highlight is the visualisation of the lime kilns of Lauriacum.
