Abstract:

In 55 BC Julius Caesar marched through Europe, crushing the rebellious tribes in the North. In mid-summer he arrived at the mighty Rhine. He was determined to get his legions across to teach the tribes on the other side a lesson, but considered it beneath the dignity of the Roman army to cross the river by boat. Consequently, he ordered his men to build a wooden bridge over a river which was at least 400 meters wide, up to 8 meters deep and flowing at 2 meters a second. In his account of “The Gallic Wars” he claims that from the felling of the first tree to the completed bridge, this massive structure was built in only ten days. Caesar's Bridge attempts to discover if Caesar was boasting.
