Roman Principia, cardboard model 1:87
The Principia was the central building in every Roman military camp and a kind of headquarters. They were built according to standardised construction plans and had a courtyard, which was mainly lined with arcades. In some cases (such as in Saalburgkastell or in the Roman cavalry fort in Aalen), the Principia were completed with a large vestibule. However, the actual centre of the representative Principia was a rear row of buildings with several rooms, in which the regimental sanctuary with the unit units (sacellum) and the regimental chest was located. The central courtyard was probably used as a parade ground.
