Example text

Unfortunately, when considering the significance of such evidence, less attention has been given to the impact of industrialisation and pollution on the Danube, as the different chemical composition of the Danube waters now may have The Dacian heartland 33 lowered their freezing temperature. Moreover, the presence of vine cultivation in pre-Roman and Roman times would not allow for much colder average temperatures than the present ones. In some examples of Roman buildings in Dacia, as for instance at Sarmizegetusa Ulpia, the early rainwater drains have been replaced in their later phases by much larger ones.

It will try to give an answer to some of the preliminary questions raised above and offer an alternative interpretative scheme for the way the process of romanisation developed in Dacia. 1 Physical geography: geomorphology, topography and geology Modern Romania is located in Eastern Europe, to the north of the Balkan Peninsula and west of the Black Sea. With an even distribution of mountains, hills and plains and a rich network of watercourses, the geography of Romania is largely structured around the south-eastern end of the Carpathian Mountains (a branch of the Alpine–Himalayan Mountains).

Over time, the coverage of historical accounts extends gradually towards the Dacian area, the intra-Carpathian region and the north-west. A further bias in the quality of information is also detectable. While some authors such as Herodotus, Ovid, Crito, Balbus and others had travelled to the area and collected their information locally, others used exclusively second-hand information mainly from the works of other authors, and possible alterations must be taken into account. However, even the information from those authors who travelled in the region is sometimes only second-hand.
