The Lipovu Site

Lipovu site

Adrian and Alexandru were at "Cariere" point, at Lipovu Mic village area, to search for the Bronze age site from there, also to search in this area where ancient Romans quarried limestone for the ancient Roman buildings at Cioroiu Nou.

Even though it is typically a Bronze age site, it is still possible to find a few Roman pottery artefacts, which proves the Alexis theory that there is a connection between this area and the Cioroiu Nou site.

After searching the entire area, the following results were recorded:

The northern part of the stony area, on the right side of the valley, going towards Lipov Mic, has not artefacts or sites.

On the left side of the valley, in the southern stony area, there is a huge site from the Bronze Age, mostly destroyed by the exploitation of the limestone there, but part of the site is still in existence.

History in Lipovu

Lipovu

Dr Gheorghe met a retired teacher from Lipovu village, a man called Sever Dascalu, who has a collection of old coins, old documents, and ancient stone artefacts. He loves history.

He has worked for over 15 years to make a small museum in the village with a lot of artefacts.

The old museum building is still empty, and only ethnographic artefacts are still in place in a room near by.

Lipovu
With the help of the general manager of Oltenia Museum, Prof. Dr Mihai Fifor, these artefacts will be evaluated by the museum specialists, and some of them will be donated by Mr Sever Dascalu, for a better future.

Dr Gheorghe writes:

I wonder how many places like this we can find in the Oltenia area, where old priests, teachers and other people from the village still have documents and artefacts which are very important for our history.
