Romanian and German archaeologists have discovered a prehistoric fortress dating back as far as 3,400 years in western Romania.
Archaeologist Florin Golgatan said that the find represented “one of the biggest prehistoric fortresses in Europe in the Bronze Age”.
Golgatan, a researcher at the Archaeology Institute in Cluj northwestern Romania, said the team used specialised archaeological magnetic equipment to take underground measurements. Last week, they completed a dig uncovering 55 hectares of the 80-hectare site, built between 1400 B.C. and 1200 B.C., located near the town of Santana.
