Antike Fernverkehrsachsen in Luxemburg. Rekonstruktionsmöglichkeiten anhand der Etymologie und Arealität von Mikrotoponymen
This article seeks to extend and enhance knowledge about road networks in late antiquity (and later) within the borders of the modern Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Using microtoponyms and onomastic cartography, the article seeks to reconstruct the actual course of ancient Roman road networks. The interlinking nodes of these networks, that is, the cities passed through along the way, have been known for some time; less well-documented, however, are the actual routes themselves. By focusing on etymology and name typology, a network of roads can be reconstructed from onomastic data that was present at least in late antique Luxembourg, with possible Gaulish origins. as According to the toponomastic evidence, this network was further maintained or even enhanced during post-Gallo-Roman settlement.
