Abstract:

The article aims a synthetic presentation of the preliminary results of the preventive archaeological excavations made on Tărtăria II site, Alba county, by a team of the NHMR. A detailed analysis is focused on the discoveries dated to the Roman period, considered in the context of the research stage of a certain part of the middle Mureş valley. From an archaeological point of view, the most significant horizon is defined by the presence of a Roman period habitation, with two distinct phases. The first one (dated on the first half of 2″d century AD) was identified in connection with the use of an edifice (E4) and other structures in relation to it. During the second phase (the second half of the 2″d century AD- first half of the 3’d century AD) functioned four edifices (E 1, E2, E3, E5), with different locations and orientations compared to the previous phase. On both phases, the edifices were situated inside of an area bordered by a ditch. The analysis of the archaeological situation corroborated with epigraphic and historic arguments entitle us to postulate the existence in here of a villa, in connection with the Roman road from Apulum to Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa. Most probably this was a property of a member of the municipal elite of the province’s capital.
