Dig Spotlight: Uncovering a Great Ancient Dacian Fortress
In 106 A.D., Roman legions under Emperor Trajan battled with and eventually defeated the Dacians at one of their major fortress strongholds located in what is now known as modern Romania. The Romans destroyed the fortress and went on to subdue the remaining Dacians as a part of their expanding Empire. Today, archaeological excavations are uncovering the massive remains of this fortress complex, including defensive walls and other associated structures. No extensive experience in archaeological excavation is required, but the work is demanding and the project leaders are calling for individuals who have a true passion for archaeology. Approximately 70% of the site, including the acropolis, is still unexcavated and further investigation holds the promise of some extremely interesting discoveries.
