Summary/Abstract: The Dacian fortification is an emblematic chapter of the value and creativity of our predecessors. The destinations of the settlements and their internal organization stand for original arrangements of defensive fighting systems with specific characteristic, wich provide indications of their own traditions, in an original approach but with integration in the military architecture of the antiquity. The overwall picture of the Dacian fortifications sends throughout history a modernist concept by shaping the framework of everyday life and by the military aspects used in the preparation of defense against invaders.
