In the pit there was burnt rubble, parts of horses' harnesses, and
the boss. The shield it
belonged to was destroyed in the fire. The fact that other armour
pieces were also burnt may indicate that the fire developed
suddenly. The catastrophy, which destroyed the barracks, can be
dated by the finds to 230 AD.
Afterwards,the pits were filled with rubble and a new bath was built at the site of the former barracks, within the fort walls.
The boss was found in a pit near the barracks in Fort Miltenberg-Bürgstadt
