When In Rome

This is an extremely cool archaeological find (via):

Archaeologists have found more than 600 relics from a huge battle between a Roman army and Barbarians in the third century, long after historians believed Rome had given up control of northern Germany. Some of the artifacts are so well preserved that the scientists can already retrace some of the battle lines.

My guess is that the battle was a result of some sort of punitive expedition.
