Presentation - Potaissa Roman Camp Turda

The camp was built by the 5th Roman legion Macedonica, at Potaissa, near Turda municipality in order to consolidate the North-Western defensive of Roman Dacia. The legion built on Dealul Cetatii plateau the biggest camp with longstanding functioning from this Roman province.

This had a rectangular shape, with sides of approximately 400-500 m, occupying a surface of over 20 ha and housing approx. 5.000 soldiers. The defence walls had a thickness of approximately 2 m, being made of mortar and stone, in front of them being a water ditch of 12 m width. The most important building from the camp was that of the head office.

In 274, the 5th legion Macedonica, together with the other Roman troops, retreated from Dacia. Many old objects have been discovered in the camp (architectonic pieces, sculptures, mosaics, stone inscriptions, coins, small objects) as well as the tomb of a Gepid princess.
