Archaeological excavations at Haus Bürgel brought to light a vast number of late Roman finds. Jewellery, combs, pottery, tools, and weapons tell us about everyday life in a Roman fort until well into the fourth century AD. These finds are now on display in the Roman Museum at Haus Bürgel, which is run by a group of dedicated volunteers who also established the archaeological walk around the fort's former walls.

Apart from the barracks, the fort included a granary, workshops, and a bath house with a warm bath, a cold bath, and under-floor heating. It is probable that up to 150 soldiers were stationed at Bürgel, most of whom would have been German auxiliaries. In contrast to their Roman colleagues, they wore ankle-length trousers and carried circular shields as well as javelins with barbed heads.
