Danubius, XXXVIII, Galaţi, 2020, pp. 69-114.
In 2020, researchers from “Paul Păltănea” History Museum of Galați and the “Lower Danube Museum” of Călărași carried out an archaeological preventive research in the area of Tirighina tumular necropolis, where a private company was developing a warehouse. The imminence of a potential disruption of the archaeological strata by the construction led to the excavation of a total area of 1960 m2, in a single dig unit called S1 (Surface 1). During the archaeological investigations, we were able to identify a part of the 2nd-3rd century Roman necropolis, a defensive ditch which protected the Roman fort from Barboși and a series of earth works from the First World War.
