Description

Archaeological excavations "Hohe Birga"

The "Hohe Birga" in Birgitz is the only area of ​​outdoor archaeological excavations in the region of Innsbruck. It is located about 500 m as the crow flies from the center of Birgitz, it is easily accessible on foot in about 20 minutes.

More than 2000 years ago, at the top of the hill "Hohe Birga" and well protected, was a colony of Raetian. The Raetians settled in the Alpine space in the late 6th century BC. In the 15th century BC the Romans began to conquer the Alps and it is assumed that the Roman military occupation of North Tyrol resulted in the destruction of the settlement of "Hohe Birga".

At present, three terraces artificially created to make room for colonization are clearly distinguished. The hill is home to many remains of the original buildings, two of which have been excavated by the University of Innsbruck in recent years.
Excavations resulted in the recovery of ceramic objects, jewelery and metal tools, as well as glass and bone objects.
