This meticulously edited volume, containing a lot of coloured figures and plates, represents the monographical presentation of an important Roman rural settlement in all its aspects, including archaeozoology. Between 2009 and 2011 salvage archaeological research was conducted in the northern area of the present day village of Niculitel (Dobruja, South-East Romania) revealing an early Roman villa, which functioned starting with first half of the 2nd century and lasted until mid-3rd century AD when the entire area was destroyed by the Carpian and Gothic invasions. The authors of this monograph proposed an interdiciplinary analysis of the architectural remains and of the archaeological findings discovered during two field seasons. A large pottery assemblage has been analysed, together with related finds made of glass, metal and carved bone.
