In the Oberhalbstein, more and more traces of the Alpine campaign of the Romans are coming to light. Already 20 years ago, early Roman spinning lead was found near the gorge Crap Ses between Tiefencastel and Cunter. Since then, more than 750 wholes or parts of early Roman and Celtic protective and offensive weapons have been seized at four locations. Among them are other slingshots, projectile tips, sword fragments and shoe nails. In 2019, even a 2000-year-old dagger was found and restored. As a result, the five-year research project "CVMBAT" was initiated, in which the landscape of finds is searched on a large scale.
This event is part of the Parc Ela summer series "Scazis da tera", which invites locals and guests to take a look underground. In partnership with the Archaeological Service graubünden, we are on the road with researchers in the Parc Ela this year to discover our history stored in the ground. Learn what it looked like a long time ago in Parc Ela and what treasures can still be recovered today. The subsequent aperitif offers the opportunity to discuss the fascination and importance of these mineral resources.
