Abstract:

This paper is a preliminary report of the newest results from pluridisciplinary research undertaken on the Lower Danube limes, between Durostorum and Dunavățu de Jos. Our goal is to bring up to date the available information regarding the fortifications located on the Early and Later Roman limes in Dobrogea, in a similar manner to the reports on the various areas/sites of the frontiers of the Roman Empire, published periodically in the proceedings of the international Limes congresses. For Dobrogea, the most recent ones were published almost two decades ago (1997-2005).

The data were gathered throughout the progress of the Romanian National Limes Programme. The monuments were identified through multiple approaches, as specified in the Action Plan of the programme, such as field walking and sampling, topographical measurements and drone flights (aerial photography, oblique, orthophotography and recordings) and compared to the available archives. We focus on the fortifications and the adjacent areas in order to establish a proper protection plan management and to include these sites on the World Heritage list.
