MOS MAIORVM is a cultural non-profit association of persons, based in Rome Italy, whose interest it is to study history, perform historical reconstructions and do re-enactment of the Roman period from the IV to the I century BC. We apply our studies to all the aspects of the Roman civilization – military, civil and religious - but also with a keen interest in other Italic archaic peoples.
Funded in 2014, the association co-operates with the city of Blaustein in the development of an archaeological park on the UNESCO World Heritage site in Ehrenstein near Ulm, Germany. Ehrenstein is one of the 111 sites of prehistoric pile dwellings around the Alps that were recognised as World Heritage by the UNESCO in 2011. It is unique in that it is the only site in a river valley, it is the only site north of the Danube, and the only site where special limestone discs were discovered. The Neolithic village existed for about 80-100 years in the 4th millennium B.C and is seen as representing the Schussenrieder culture.

It was an extraordinary stroke of luck when in 1953 an extensive burial ground was discovered on the Heidberg, a sand dune in the border area between Liebenau and Steyerberg, Germany. Here, the population of the surrounding settlements buried their relatives in the period from the 4th to the 9th century AD.
For more than thirty years, albeit intermittently, excavations have taken place there. More than 500 body and fire graves were uncovered and documented. It was only thanks to this meticulous archaeological research that it was possible to learn about the life of the inhabitants at that time. Written records from this region are not known for that period.
