The Alexis team often picks up a small bit of information about a possible site, and then makes a trip there, to make an evaluation at the target field, as well as studying satellite data in order to come to a conclusion.

So…. the Alexis team received information that about 60 km north of Craiova, in Valcea county, near the village of Tetoiu there was an ancient fortress, where Roman coins and other artefacts had been discovered.

A preliminary search on the net showed that, in the southern part of the hills was a possible site for the fortress, near a river and a forest, a site which may well have been a Castra Estivae, still unknown to science.

On arrival there, the team could not find the clay defence wall of the presumed Castrum, even though it can be seen well on the satellite image. Roads had been constructed over the field.
