After becoming General he participated in a few battles reluctantly, but later he devoted himself to archaeological studies. He was an early archaeologist at the forts of Köngen,Benningen am Neckar, Schirenhof and Unterböbingen, which are now listed as part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. He chose the places of his excavations, based on combining military strategic considerations. He has acquired and spread his knowledge about the Roman history also on Limes Gate Dalkingen, which he interpreted as a military outpost, and in Rottenburg am Neckar.
