Abstract/Summary

This chapter considers the afterlife of the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, in which three Roman legions were destroyed. It considers both literary representations of the Battle in ancient and modern sources, and its monumentalisation at Rome and in Germany. For the former, a digital reconstruction is used to illustrate the possible shape, location, and architectural treatment of a lost monumental archway and to consider questions of sightlines and architectural/topographical context.
