Archaeologists Unearth Large Bronze-Age City in Romania
Ana Maria Luca

A team of Romanian and German archaeologists has unearthed an 80-hectare prehistoric city in western Romania which they have described as a ‘Troy of the Carpathians’.

Romanian and German archaeologists have discovered an 8-hectare late Bronze Age fortified city located on the lower Mures River near Arad in western Romania.

How big? 80, 8, or 29 hectacres?

40 hectacres, and a wooly mammoth?
