• Subiect: THE ROMAN ROAD CLUJ-NAPOCA - GILĂU IN THE SECTOR BETWEEN FLOREŞTI ANO GILĂU During the autumn of 2000 and the spring of 2001, the authors of the present paper investigated a plot of land, in order to identify the roman road between Cluj-Napoca and Gilău. The starting point of the research was the short description made by the Romanian researcher Mihail Macrea in bis book about the life in Roman Dacia. The results of these investigations on the whole are the following. The roman road is situated on the right side of the actual road between Cluj-Napoca and Gilău. From all the elements presented in this study, one can clearly see that the Roman copyists built the roman road by taking account the local geomorphological, geological and hydrological conditions for a high-secured road traffic. On its length of 8 km from the starting point of our research and up to the auxiliary roman camp in Gilău, the medium slope in of 1°. The pavement of the ancient road, of 6 to 8 meters wide, bas two successive strata: 1. a gravel bed, brought from the Valley of Someşul Mic; 2. a limestone layer (slabs of minor size). There are plenty of drinking water sources around. We have to underline that the roman road avoids the unsuitable marshy zones. There are a few but long radius curves. The general orientation of the road is E-V.
