  2. Yes it is Kalkriese in Osnabrück, Germany. The comment "for anniversary" was actually a good hint, but it took me long time to understand it(I was just a minute too slow). Well done Geoff!

  3. It is indeed Kalkriese, the (presumed) site of the clades variana in 9 AD, exactly 2000 years ago this year.

    Well done, Geoff! Over to you.
