Between 2009 and 2022, extensive archaeological excavations took place in the thermal baths of Baden (Canton Aargau, Switzerland). The first volume of the publication of the most important excavations is now available. It presents the Baden baths in their geographical, geological, archaeological and historical context and is dedicated to the history of tradition and research from the beginnings to the present day. The history of archaeological research is seen as an intrinsic part of the history of Baden’s baths. This Volume 1 provides the basis for the diachronic presentation of the excavation results which will be published in Volume 2 in 2025.

The publication is in German. Nevertheless, it contains longer summaries in French, Italian and English.
