Military camp of the Roman army
The ancient Roman Empire already had a relatively modern and advanced army. The technologies already back then were really thought-out. Because of that as well to the Romans it was very important to maintain and enforce the fighting spirits and morals of their soldiers. After wearing fights and exhausting marches durable military camps for breaks, protection form the weather and unexpected attacks were necessary. The previous camps with their light earth embankments and fences didn't offer the needed protection and comfort anymore. So the construction's structure was simplified, at the same time standardised and adapted to the circumstances. Camps out of wood along the limes one after the other were constructed in stone. Especially important as well was the representative appearance.
The pretty postcard one by one is equipped with totally different motives. The small figures are drawn detailed and because of there characteristics easy to categorise. So for example the rider, a mules guide, the carrier of the banner, a legionary or commander (legatus).
