Where there was a bath, there was a settlement

It was in 1898 that a Roman bathhouse was uncovered in the Carinthian Möll Valley. This large facility covered an area of almost 300 square metres. Investigations in the surrounding area failed to materialise until 2017, when a new research project was launched.

Stefan Pircher, who studied archaeology at the University of Innsbruck, was made aware of these archaeological remains, which had received little mention among experts since the excavations in 1898. Without further ado, a project application was submitted and the land adjacent to the baths was investigated using geophysical prospection methods, during which the ground plans of seven to eight new buildings were discovered.
