Archaeology Magazine has a nice write up about Aquincum, Roman ruins that can be seen in today's Budapest. I just had the opportunity to visit again after a period of 16 years. In addition to the ruins themselves, there is a beautiful new museum, though sadly the old museum on the grounds is now closed and in disrepair. The site also features a Roman themed playground for children and some neat periscope like devices that place an image of a reconstruction of the site over today's scene. For those visiting Budapest, Aquincum is a bit off the beaten track, but well worth the visit.
