"...NUMQVID DE DACIS AVDISTI?"
(Horatius, Satire, II, 6, 53.)
„The archaeological research is a tradition of the National Museum of Transylvanian History (MNIT) since its formation, as one of the main ways to enrich the institution's patrimony. The museum's archaeologists are working, each year, on sites all over Transylvania, or in other regions of the country, as well as abroad. Thanks to them, as well at to other colleagues researchers, the history of Transylvania, from the prehistoric times to the modern age, is uncovered and presented to the public.
The study of the Late Iron Age, or of the Roman times, including the sites in the area of the Dacian central-place, Sarmisegetusa Regia, has a long tradition with the MNIT, since the museum’s specialists are performing archaeological studies there uninterruptedly for more then six decades.”

General Manager of the National Museum of Transylvanian History
