Emperor Trajan’s Palace discovered in Caras-Severin County

An archaeological discovery of exceptional historical importance will bring the village of Zavoi in the Bistra Valley, Caras-Severin County, to the attention of history researchers and archaeologists from around the world following the digging up of the ruins of a Roman palace with well-preserved structures, which is expected to offer so far unknown precious information about the Daco-Roman culture.

A team headed by researcher Adrian Ardet of the Caransebes County Museum of Ethnography has brought to light a complex structure estimated to be 2,000 years old belonging to the Roman culture, probably built in the autumn of 101 during the first Dacian-Roman War of 101-102.

The discovery of what was called ‘he Emperor Trajan’s Palace’ of Zavoi has a special importance because it was built very early, before the actual Roman conquest of Dacians.

The archaeological style of the building is unique in Romania, as it fully meets the Roman tradition for towering structures.

The Roman vestiges of Zavoi will be recovered, conserved and displayed to their real value with support from the Romanian Ministry of Culture and Religious Affairs, the County Council and the County Directorate for Culture, Religious Affairs and National Heritage, which is expected to bring about the tourist development of the entire area.

The salvaging diggings so far will become systematic, and the entire location will turn into an archaeological site. More extraordinary discoveries are expected there.
