SOME CONSIDERATIONS ABOUT THE CIVILIAN SETTLEMENTS FROM THE PROXIMITY OF THE NORTH DANUBIAN LIMES OF THE ROMAN PROVINCE MOESIA INFERIOR
Danubius, XXIII, Galaţi, 2005, pp. 7-24.
In this article we analyse those discoveries which prove the existence of civilian settlements in the immediate neighbourhood of the South Moldavian mud walls (linear fortifications having the role of limes for the Roman Province Moesia Inferior). The settling of the civilians near these military structures, within the Roman mud wall Trajan-Tuluceşti, must have been done with the agreement of the Roman Administration. The artefacts discovered within this area prove that only two establishments existed here, during the III-rd and the IV-th centuries. At its turn, this proves that even after their retreat from the Lower Danube, the Romans still exerted some control upon this area.
