Abstract:

Alburnus Maior has a special place in the scholarly literature due to a series of exceptional discoveries made in here since the beginning of the I 91 h c. up to nowadays. Until 2000 the artefacts discovered at Roşia Montană came from stray finds, after that year large-scale preventive archaeological excavations were undertaken on site. As a result, from 2001 to 2012 were investigated ancient mining galleries, worship places, habitation areas and cemeteries. Located in the central part of Roşia Montană, the Carpeni Hill was in time one of the find spots for a consistent number of inscriptions. Recent archaeological excavations made in this area, in the framework of „Alburnus Maior” National Research Program, led to the discovery of a small cluster of dwellings and two groups of graves on the north-western part of the site, as well as two edifices with hypocaustum, namely E 1 to the south-eastern extremity of the site and E2 to the central part of the site, on the so-called spot Bisericuţă. The results of the archaeological investigations made in 2001 were published as a preliminary report (Ţentea, Voişian 2003a, 447-467). This paper represents thee archaeological report of the excavations made in 2002- 2003 in the Roman bath house E2 on Carpeni Hill.
