“The year 2017 will mark the hundredth anniversary of Carl Schuchhardt’s last and most comprehensive survey of the Dobrogea walls, that complex of three linear fortifications linking the Danube with the Black Sea. Of all the topics that absorbed the German archaeologist over the course of his long life, none, perhaps, proved more enduring than his study of the Lower Danubian Earthwork Fortifications in Romania. Indelibly linked as his name is with Pergamon and Haltern, with the Eberswalde and Craiova hoards, and with the search for Vineta, however, Schuchhardt’s contributions in the area of Romanian archaeology have not received the attention that they deserve. The present volume attempts to address this gap with annotated texts of Schuchhardt’s four relevant papers on the Lower Danubian Earthwork Fortifications together with a discussion of his life and certain aspects of his contributions to European and Romanian archaeology.” (The Authors)
