Since the end of the 19th century Roman archaeological findings have been discovered in the East of Auggen in the land parcel “Schlossäcker”. In 1983 during excavation works masonry and a water conduit were found. Arial photos and ground penetrating radar investigations have shown that there was a large Roman estate with a manor house and a farm, having a size of nearly 9 hectares. Next to the residential building a bathhouse and an extended long water basin are visible. Archaeological findings such as mosaic pieces, marble plates and fragments of a marble statue refer to the luxurious equipment of the living area.
