This popular scientific and richly illustrated book invites readers to take an imaginary journey into the world of the ancient Roman Empire. At the beginning of this journey are the archaeological traces of the Roman legions in our territory and the research results by generations of researchers from the Brno Archaeological Institute. The centre of interest is the extraordinary location of Hradisko near Mušov, the most authentic Roman site in our territory, and its uniquely representative set of archaeological findings. Attractive photographs and accompanying texts familiarise the reader with the activity of the Roman legions in the south of Moravia, presenting their equipment, weapons and everyday items. The publication vividly depicts an era from our territory that although short was extraordinarily historically significant. The book complements and develops the existing relevant popularisation platforms of the Academy of Sciences, especially the Visitor Centre – Gateway to the Roman Empire, and can be considered a practical guide to the exhibition there.
