The Roman Villa Borg is a reconstructed Roman villa located near the village of Borg in Saarland, Germany. The villa consisted of three wings covering an area of more than 7.5 hectares, with an agricultural facility including a large palatial residence (pars urbana) and an economic area (pars rustica). The complex was excavated in the late 1980s CE, and a plan to reconstruct an authentic representation of the buildings as they originally appeared in the 2nd and 3rd centuries CE began in 1994 CE. Today, the archaeological park functions as an open-air museum and provides a detailed impression of what life was like back then in the countryside.
