With the construction of a fortified camp, the Romans began after the defeat against the Germans in the Battle of Varus 9 n. Chr. To 17 n. Chr. They created in the northern part of Ubiersiedlung an auxiliary forts. 43 n. Chr. It came to the construction of a new camp, which now lay further north than the existing one. It was opposite the mouth of the victory in the Rhine at the Roman Rheintalstraße. In the wood / earth-camp was due to the conversion of nearby Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium (later Cologne) into a civilian settlement, the Legio I and two other auxiliary units stationed. This approximately 7,000-strong force built the camp in the next few years as part of the Roman defense line along the Rhine further. The almost square fortress had is an area of 528 times 524 meters with a port facility, which was, of course, to the east by the Rhine and can still be seen at low tide in their layouts.
