|Excerpt||Castra Nova and the earthen structures at Amărăştii de Jos, Dolj County. A preliminary study.|
While checking some maps on Google Maps, on the territory of the Amărăştii de Jos town in Dolj County, the author has identified 10 structures, to the north of the locality, situated between a stream (Siliştea Veche) and a concrete channel, their shapes and sizes suggesting they could be assigned to the Roman period. The main interest was a quadrilateral structure appearing to be a castrum. A field survey at Amărăştii de Jos on the 5th of June 2018, revealed the existence of well preserved earthen structures buried, probably ancient, and a castrum. As in the Tabula Peutingeriana, indicated that Castra Nova was located between Pelendava (Craiva) and Romula (Reşca), is possible to identify this newly identified castrum with it. That is a topic that has given birth over time to various theories regarding its location ( Cacaleţi/Castranova, Puţuri, Georocul Mare, Drăgoteşti-Viişoara, etc.). Therefore, in this preliminary stage of documentation, before any intrusive archaeological research having taken place, there are a number of arguments advocating for the localization of the Castra Nova fort at Amărăştii de Jos. The latter was an earthen castrum whose existence can be tied to the Dacian wars. Numerous settlements and discoveries belonging to the Roman period were recorded both south of the Amărăştii de Jos village and on the territory of the neighboring villages ((Amărăştii de Sus, Zvorsca, Bucinişul, Odaia).
