archaeology

Carla Dodocioiu writes in the Editie Speciala of 3 July 2012 that all research through excavations conducted so far have shown that the archaeological site of Răcari is one of the best preserved and biggest in Oltenia. Its position, just 90 metres SW of station Răcari (measured from the NE tower), five metres from County Road 606F (for Scaieni) and just 220 metres from the European road 70/79, make this goal a leading candidates for a future tourist exploitation. Although work was begun in 2011, the Roman camp Răcari still has some issues related to safety and conservation.

For the site of Cioroiu Nou, there have been 12 campaigns of excavations with the active involvement of Dr Dorel Bondoc and Dr Adrian Gheorghe, the Alexis Project Foundation representative. Dr Gheorghe dreamed, with Dorel Bondoc, of the exploitation for tourism of the Roman Thermae, and contributed to the building of a replica Roman watchtower and a wooden bridge over the brook that flows through the site. Currently, the Alexis Foundation Project, with Bulgarian partners, is using EU funds in a project designed to contribute to preserving and promoting the baths. Unfortunately, this site is not even fenced, and has no security or proper promotion.

More can be read in the excellent article, left, by Carla Dodocioiu of Editie Speciala, which includes an artist's impression of the Răcari site.

discovery



Ruins found beneath road

While doing road work for an overpass, Craiova workers uncovered some walls under the Vlaicii Valley Road. First they found the remains of a building of two centuries ago. Not stopping work, they continued to dig, and three metres down they found imposing arches and walls half a metre thick.

Archeological work is needed to interpret what has been discovered.

'It is a page of history in Craiova' said archaeologist Dorel Bondoc from Oltenia Museum. 'By the terms of the building permit the client also has the obligation, if they make archaeological finds, to notify the Directorate of Culture to do research to see what it is. It seems, however, not to have done so, and someone must answer for it'.

The report below is from the important newspaper Gazeta de Sud, 17th March 2012

SOS - Zestrea culturală a Olteniei
Gorj si Mehedinti - Mihaela FLOROIU
(citeste alte articole de acelasi autor »)
La Muzeul Judeţean Gorj a fost lansat volumul 'SOS - Zestrea culturală a Olteniei', semnat de doctorul în medicină Adrian Gheorghe.

Autorul Adrian Gheorghe a reuşit să tragă un semnal de alarmă în ceea ce priveşte soarta monumentelor istorice din cele cinci judeţe ale Olteniei. Doctorul Adrian Gheorghe a publicat volumul 'SOS - Zestrea culturală a Olteniei' după o îndelungată documentare şi vizitare a tuturor monumentelor istorice prezentate între copertele cărţii. Autorul, având o vastă cultură şi mânat de dragostea pentru tezaurul cultural al Olteniei, a adunat informaţii preţioase despre bisericile incluse în patrimoniul naţional din zona Olteniei. Din păcate, multe dintre aceste monumente sunt total necunoscute publicului şi se află într-o avansată stare de degradare. 'Patrimoniul ecleziastic al Olteniei e în pericol. Un spectacol înfiorător, care nu este demn de o instituţie ce-L slujeşte pe Dumnezeu şi oamenii, ni se arată când mergem şi căutăm bisericile-monument ale Olteniei. În fiecare judeţ al Olteniei există monumente care se află în paragină, într-o stare deplorabilă', a spus doctorul Adrian Gheorghe.

Indolenţă şi scuze permanente

Om în alcătuirea căruia inteligenţa s-a împletit cu pasiunea pentru păstrarea tezaurului valorilor culturale ale Olteniei, doctorul Adrian Gheorghe a venit la Târgu Jiu pentru a le prezenta autorităţilor din domeniu soluţia sa: accesarea fondurilor europene şi renunţarea la nepăsare. 'Din păcate, există entităţi desemnate legal din rândul Bisericii Ortodoxe, ale administraţiei locale şi centrale, precum şi instituţii descentralizate teritoriale, aflate în subordinea Ministerului Culturii şi Patrimoniului Naţional, ce nu îşi exercită optim atribuţiile specifice pentru salvarea şi conservarea patrimoniului naţional religios. Semnale de alarmă au tot fost trase. Eu vin cu soluţia la această problemă. Toată lumea spune că nu sunt bani. Există varianta accesării fondurilor europene pe programul PNDR. Trebuie implicare. Lăsaţi indolenţa!', a spus Adrian Gheorghe.

Monumente în paragină

Foarte multe monumente istorice de cult din judeţul Gorj au ajuns într-o stare deplorabilă, unele au fost chiar distruse de intemperii şi de nepăsarea oamenilor. 'Este o situaţie tristă în Gorj în ceea ce priveşte aproximativ 120 de biserici de lemn: unele sunt căzute la pământ, prin acoperişurile şi învelitorile distruse plouă, interioarele sunt devastate sau folosite ca depozite de gunoi. Am găsit cârpeli «binevoitoare» la tot pasul, improvizaţii moderniste, care au desfigurat forma originală a acestora, un spectacol înfiorător', a spus doctorul Adrian Gheorghe.

Radovan bride
This is a new version of the midnight bride story, in which Eleana was married for a short time to a young man from Radovan village who was killed, so Eleana killed herself after this tragedy.

After this, the story is completed with a lot of people killed b y Radovan's bride in the middle of the Radovan forest, also in a deep lake at Fantanele, a small village not so far from Radovan village.

Alexis does not believe this newspaper story, and must continue the search for the real Radovan's bride, and to protect her memory and soul.
