Hochbruch, Niederbruch, and the town centre. The first settlements by isolated tribes can be dated to around the year 2000 BC. Around 15 BC the Roman castrum or camp Vetera was created on the Fürstenberg near modern-day Birten. After the destruction of Vetera a second camp became established at the Bislicher Insel, named Castra Vetera II, which became the base camp of Legio VI Victrix. In 275 the colonia was almost destroyed by Germanic tribes. In 363, during the reign of Julian, the Christian Viktor of Xanten is supposed to have been executed together with 360 other members of the Theban Legion near the modern town of Birten for refusing to sacrifice to the Roman gods. In the 5th century the Franks began to settle in the area of today’s Xanten, but no urban settlements have been found from this time as the Franks did not build in stone, unlike the Romans.
Only graves from this time have been discovered. According to the legend of the Nibelungs, the mythical Siegfried of Xanten was born ze Santen an dem Rhîne. The name of „place of saints“ was derived from the assumed grave of the martyr Viktor of Xanten and is the source of today’s municipal name of Xanten.

Xanten had a Jewish community in early medieval times.
