The first editorial director of the journal was the great Romanian archaeologist Ion T.Dragomir (1967-1981), followed by the historian Ştefan Stanciu (1985-2006), and, starting from 2007, prof. Cristian Dragoş Căldăraru.
The journal publishes materials pertaining to the following fields: Archaeology, History, Cultural History, Auxiliary Sciences, Ethnography, Cultural Patrimony, Museography.
A special place hold the materials dealing with economical and political problems related to the Danube, since the city of Galati is situated on the banks of the river, near its mouths, and it played an important role in the history of the Danubian navigation.
Recently, the journal has started to be published mainly in English or French, only the articles which are very specifically related to local culture being published in Romanian.
All the old issues have extensive abstracts in French, while, starting with the year 2000, all the issues have abstracts in English.
