      Lost Roman camp that protected against Germanic hordes found
      The Telegraph [UK], 27 Oct 2011

      German archaeologists have unearthed "sensational" evidence of a lost
      Roman camp that formed a vital part of the frontier protecting Rome's
      empire against the Germanic hordes. Historians believe the camp, once
      home to an estimated 1,000 legionaries and located on the River Lippe
      near the town of Olfen, may well have been served as a key base for the
      Roman General Drusus, who waged a long and bloody war against the tribes
      that once inhabited what is now western Germany. The find comes 100
      years after the discovery of a bronze Roman helmet near Olfen indicated
      the presence of ancient remains but it took a century of searching to
      finally discover the exact location of the camp.
