The excavations in the roman Vicus Gleisdorf situated in upper styria served as an essential starting point for the investigation of roman provincial small town settlements in the region. The central subject of this master thesis is the publication of the findings and features, which were made during the excavation campaign in 1996 in the southeastern periphery of the settlement (Parz. 164, 51/5, conducted by G. Jeschek, M. Lehner). Several architectural remains of the earlier (1st, 2nd century AD) wood construction period (post holes, trenches for wooden beams, remains of burns) and the later (2nd, 3rd century AD) stone construction period (remains of walls) were documented, but a strong reuse of the site and building activity in the modern era is also present. Concerning the findings, the indigenous coarse ware which was largely fabricated in Gleisdorf is predominant, but also fine oxidised and deoxidised burnt ware, two fibulas, four coins, a glass bowl, a flint fragment, and a large amount of imported Samian Ware (Terra Sigillata) were graphically or photographically documented, analysed and presented. Several fragments of African Red Slip Ware provide another proof for the survival of the settlement at least till the 4th century AD, even though in a much smaller state. This master thesis also attempts to answer further significant scientific questions (continuity of the settlement from the late iron age till roman times till the Middle Ages; different theories about the course of the ancient border between eastern Noricum and western Pannonia and the related question, if the Vicus Gleisdorf was situated in Noricum or Pannonia). A short chapter about the history of research, the essential characteristics of the settlement form „Vicus“ and the topography of the region provide the necessary context to understand the significance of the excavation campaign in 1996.
