 Our Ludus Gorgonis travels to Natale di Roma!

After years in the provinces, our gladiators have apparently now also made a positive impression in the capital of the Empire: The Ludus Gorgonis will be travelling to Rome in April to perform at the Circus Maximus together with gladiators from all over Europe to celebrate the birthday of the eternal city! Unfortunately, the Colosseum was not available to the editors of the Gruppo Storico Romano.

Please note: the Ludus currently trains every Tuesday at 19:00 either at the MuK Gießen or at the Bronzepferd at Philosophikum 1. You can find more information about the Ludus here.

If you are interested in participating, please contact our lanista (m.kunzler77).

3D Museum - Desktop App

We have released the desktop app of our virtual museum so that you can explore antiquity from the comfort of your own home!

As part of the project, a virtual exhibition space was designed that can be used as an experimental laboratory for training in the handling of objects, for method-orientated and interdisciplinary teaching formats, as well as for the design of special student exhibitions. You can currently explore three themes that students have designed in a class: Temple, Tomb and Roman House. You can access the project via this link:

Information on the content and use is available here.

We hope you enjoy your journey into antiquity!


Classical Archaeology at JLU now has a second Instagram account!

Are you wondering why the Classical Archaeology Department at JLU now has two accounts?

The answer is quite simple: While @klassarchaeologie_jlu_giessen provides you with all the information about the activities and events of our Collection of Classical Antiquities, @klassischearchaeologiessen is where you can find out more about the department and, above all, about studying Classical Archaeology in Giessen. Moreover, you can regularly discover fun facts about antiquity here!

In our first post there is of course a warm welcome, but not only that...have you ever heard of flying turtles or talking barbecues? No? Then drop by and find out what it's all about!

We look forward to your visit!
