„Lately, the capital of Roman Dacia, Apulum, has become a Roman archaeological objective researched thoroughly by an impressive number of rescue excavations, which pointed out an important number of private complexes, either military or funerary. Within this context, reevalu‑ation of the whole heritage preserved in the collection of the museum was, and became a manda‑tory need to integrate discoveries and to present them appropriately to know those of funerary character, mainly.This archaeological monograph proposed by George Bounegru represents analysis of sampled funerary discoveries resulted from the northern necropolis from Apulum. The samples of 161 graves predominantly represent personal researches included in the doctoral thesis of the author, as well as more rescue excavations carried out by Gheorghe Anghel, Ioan Alexandru Aldea, Cloșca L. Băluță, Radu Ciobanu, Vasile Moga, Alexandru Popa within this necropolis. Archaeologists did us the courtesy of giving the archaeological material resulted from their own researches.” ( from Foreword)
