On the trail of the Romans in Cologne

Cologne’s history reaches as far as the Romans. But many of the remains are buried in the ground or have not survived the ages. But some Roman bits and pieces are still visible: right in front of the cathedral, there is a part of the northern Roman city gate. Not far away we find a section of the original road to the Roman harbour and a piece of the sewer. Not to mention the Romano-Germanic Museum with the famous Dionysosmosaic, the large north archway and the great legionary monument.
We take a closer look at some of these buildings by looking for an appropriate angle of view in a sketchbook, then depicting the object with pencil, markers or watercolors in its present context. The individual monuments are used to convey anecdotes and background information during the sketches.
