Illustrated Description of the Project
The large mound at the southern edge of the site which has been badly damaged by 20th century slit trenches.
View of the south-east corner of the fortress showing the University of Bucharest excavations in the foreground and Victor Bauman's excavation of the large tower in the background.
The shallow valley on the east side of the site, facing north.
View east across Lake Goose and Lake Saon showing part of the Danube flood plain.
The "Kurgan Vizir". Although a huge mound, this feature is not as large close-up as it seems when seen from elsewhere in the landscape.
View of the Kurgan Vizir from the fortress. The positioning of the mound makes it look much larger than it is (see picture above)
Part of the second Turkish fortress situated to the SE of the site.
Parch marks on the southern slopes of the Roman fortress showing the line of the fortifications.
Remains of an excavated Roman tomb to the west of the site.
One of the chambers of the tomb.
Surviving wall plaster in one of the chambers.
Top of the southern mound showing damage caused by its use as an observation point for the 20th century defences.
The “Big Tower” being excavated by Victor Baumann.
View from the southern mound looking east showing one line of 20th century slit trenches.
Large man-made feature on the southern edge of the site, jokingly known as the "Valley of Death" due to heat and mosquitoes.

View across the site from the second Turkish fortress situated to the SE of the site.
