Museum of Roman History

Mautern-Favianis-St.Severin Museum of Roman History

Run by the Town of Mautern, the museum documents life as it was in the then Roman fort of Favianis-Mautern and the surrounding civilian settlement, using striking exhibits and descriptions.

The clearly presented main collection displays finds from archaeological digs during the last decade.  The exhibits of civilian and military life date from the Bronze Age to the later part of the Post-Antiquity Era.  Among the most important items are a Roman military diploma, clay masks, a curse tablet (love spell) and a glazed figurine vase.

The museum also seeks to cover thoroughly the life and work of St Severin who ran a monastery nearby in the Post-Antiquity Era and who was present during the turmoil surrounding the migration of the Roman population.

Not only this main collection but also the museum's location itself in the former baroque granary of Mautern Castle (known as the "Schüttkasten") create an authentic ambience.  Immediately next to the museum you will find the best preserved Roman fortifications in Austria, including tower sections and sections of castle walls.
