Back then, when religion was the determining factor of life, many people spent a great deal of money trying to ease their guilty conscience, and it was the Catholic Church that became the primary recipient of such donations. Even today, people in need still live in the "Fuggerei," paying what is surely the lowest rent anywhere -- 0. Between history and industry. Generations of Germans, and children in particular, have long been enchanted by the wooden puppets. But for a long time, there was one Augsburg native the people of the city did not find so enchanting: author and playwright Bertolt Brecht, whose communist views were at odds with the otherwise tranquil Augsburg life.
More recently, however, Augsburg citizens have not only changed their mind about the author of the "Three Penny Opera," they have even become proud of their famous son.
Augsburg has come a long ways since medieval times. Today the city's image is more modern. It is no longer craftsmen, but the branches of industry located here that ensure the city's prosperity. Yet in the older section of town, you will find narrow, winding lanes and low buildings lining canals. Magnificent fountains remind of bygone days. The "Datschiburger" -- what the Augsburg people call themselves and a term for their regional plum cake specialty -- live in a pleasant, orderly city, though at first glance the people may often seem wary of new things.

For those visiting the German Christmas markets, the traditional mulled wine, cookies and sweets certainly provide for a fulfilling and festive experience. Bertolt Brecht's dramas continue to touch audiences and spark political criticism around the world 50 years after his death. He carped on capitalism and didn't mesh with the GDR -- most importantly, he entertained. Two cities are especially important to the celebration of Mozart's Anniversary, Salzburg and Vienna.
But there is a city in Germany closely connected to his life -- Augsburg. But its history with water is also unique. Berlin is about as un-Bavarian as a German city can be, but that doesn't stop Oktoberfest from rolling into town every fall.
Tamsin Walker went to find out if Berliners embrace the Munich tradition. An integrated part of this project was to involve local schools and impart an understanding of both the Roman military and science in general. Here, an extra benefit was increasing the skills of the students in presenting their specific area of interest. The book can roughly be divided in three parts.
In the first, Koepfer pages and Sebastian Bernhard pages introduce the project, the different experiments, and their methodical basis. Most of these are dealing with the production of various items to be used during the march. Others have basis in the Roman individual, such as food consumption or most efficient uses of the Roman short sword, the Gladius.
Two articles focus on different factors that influence the archaeological source material, both with a basis in the literary sources. Rather than commenting on all the articles, I will focus on some of the articles that introduce interesting questions or relevant reflections on the subject at hand. That Gaius Marius changed the rivets of the pilum from iron rivets to one of wood in order to make it a one-way weapon that could not be used by the enemy, has been stated by Plutarch and rejected by modern researchers.
He suggests that, instead of a far-reaching reform, this should be understood in terms of a pragmatic solution in a specific situation. An issue that has caused grey hairs for many experimental archaeologists is the problem of fire arrows. But why only measure the shields?

Why not include the shield covers in the experiments? Army life is not only endless battle, and the Roman soldier should also be dressed and have food and drink. But how is drink transported?
