From the Neolithic to the Roman Era
Cucullis – that was the name of Kuchl back in Roman times. At the museum in Kuchl, it is so very easy to immerse yourself completely in the distant past. One of the key dates was 15 BCE, when the road network of the region we know as Salzburg was being expanded. Back then, when the city of Salzburg was named Iuvavum, it was a time of peace, prompting people to safely settle in increasing numbers at lower elevations.
