Does anybody among the German RATers know how I could contact Christian Miks?<br>
A Google search links him with the Köln University...<br>
Many thanks<br>

Many thanks, Uwe!<br>
Mainz?! I supposed it should be Köln... If he works at the RGZM, then I'll e-mail Dr Künzl...<br>
C. Miks has published a paper with another reconstruction of the cheiroballistra and I suspect that he is also involved in the reconstruction of the recently found manuballista frame at Xanten. As I understand that the original remains will be displayed at the RGM Köln and, there are direct flights from Bilbao to Köln,... I've started cherishing the possibility of a Blitztravel but not without making some preliminary contacts first...<br>

<br>
after the 'Aitor Alert! Manuballista found!'-topic the remnants and the reconstruction will be shown in the RGM Köln indeed. The exhibition 'From the beginnings ...' starts on Sunday, March, 13th, and ends on August, 28th - click on 'Exhibitions':<br>

<br>
The museum alone (standing just beside the famous cathedral "Dome of Cologne") deserves a visit. And it is surely better to make some preliminary contacts (some days ago I visited another museum to take a few photographs from a tumbstone only to hear that the Roman department was temporarily closed).<br>
<br>
Have a nice flight to Germania inferior.<br>

Yup, it is there too that the newly found tombstone will be on display.<br>
Maybe a small RAT get-together to view it all? <p>Greets<br>

Oh, a temporary exhibition only! (My scarce and bad German!!)<br>
In any case, I should settle some 'minor' matters about my job before I can have something to celebrate with a travel to Cologne...<br>
In any case, your proposal is worthy of being fostered, Jasper!<br>
<br>
Aitor <p></p><i></i>
Indeed it is! Cologne is but a few hours by trian, and Andreas and myself would certainly like the possibility! <p>Valete,<br>

I have not visited my relatives at Cologne for quite a while. Maybe I should do something about it...<br>
Plus meet some of you guys.<br>
<br>
Aitor, what do you think of the Miks article ?<br>
<br>
Best wishes <p></p><i></i>
Flavius,<br>
I have not read the paper, only have a look at the pics, mainly.<br>
As a first overall impression, Miks has excessively complicated what, from the descripted components, should be a much simpler machine...<br>
The thread about the Kölner visit has moved to Off-topic. Will be there more Dutchs than Germans?<br>
<br>
Aitor <p></p><i></i>
Aitor, don't worry, Cologne is still full of Germans <p></p><i></i>
Well, we'll make enough sound <p>Greets<br>
<br>
Jasper</p><i></i>
I was meaning "more Dutch than German RATers"!!<br>

Aitor, my apologies for underestimating Your question<br>

A nice involuntary joke by my part, anyway...<br>
