Yes, it is the Dambach "Numeruskastell"´s small Amphitheatre. :-)
The description you provide in the link is wrong, though, there is no "Kastell Hammerschmiede"...
There is a similar find from Künzing:
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kastell_Künzing
and, of course, Zugmantel (Nathan was very close) :-)

Google image search? If so, tut tut! (I tried that with an earlier image but couldn't find a caption for the photograph. Deeply ashamed...)

My helmet is off to those who recognized this photo as an "amphitheatre", where there is not more than a ridge with trees. It was a dead ringer for a photo of an area I found of the Teutoburg Forest. Good job Robert.

I did not provide the description — the author of the photograph did. The author also supplied the coordinates and pointed the spot in Google Maps. Indeed, Dambach is nearby, about 2-3 km, but a place under the address of "Hammerschmiede 51, 91725 Ehingen, Bayern" is even closer.

Just Google search. There were some hints as well — blurry remnants of the copyright in the bottom right corner of the photograph, the number in the name of the file (16448893.jpg; this is the ID of the photograph in the "Panoramio" service), and, finally, the term "amphitheatre" (thank you, Nathan).

Ok, even though Christian did not pass me the turn, I will submit the next simple question for the quiz. What is behind these towers?

Hm. I think you didn´t get the idea of the game. I didn´t think this this was supposed to be an internet-picture-search. The "Hammerschmiede" is a street name nearby, named a a factory that stood close by. The site is "Kastell Dambach". But, whatever. Nice pics you have there.

I thought a "yes" was enough. Sorry.

Great thread Jona - I'm learning lots. Big Grin
Moi Watson

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!

I had not expected it would be this nice.

Well, here's the next question. A famous battlefield. Good luck!
