This exhibition catalog, designed by French duo Michelines (Clémence Michon & Line Célo), is the result of various excavations in the Brumath area during the last decade. The many found objects are perfect testimonies of the whole spectrum of a typical Gallo-Roman city life: urban topography, daily lifestyle, production and exchanges, beliefs and religion, necropolis and death ceremonies.
Full of pictures, the catalog is aimed at enthusiasts and curious people willing to discover the life of ancient men and women who inhabited the land around Strasbourg and, by their craft and commercial trades, contributed to the development of this region.
Echoing rough handicraftsman work, titles are set in the curveless Minotaur (whose name is also a nod to the Roman mythology), while the main text is set with a more refined Novel.
