Ancient Roman ruins have been found in Transylvania.
No, not proof that there were Roman vampires, unless you count raping a lands national resources to enrich Rome herself. Massive underground gold mines, long since stripped of high grade ore, using the technology of Ancient Rome. Artifacts totally preserved.
Now an American-Russian joint corporation, Russia-Montana Mining, wants to strip mine the area for the lower grade of gold and other ores the forested area has to offer. They promise to preserve and finance the best of the Roman ruins and mines, and create archaeological sites and museums, in exchange for mining the vast area, including destroying other Roman mines and artifacts.
The Romanian government has put the giant strip mine on hold,
but not for historic preservation. They claim the 20% stake in
the mine they have been offered is too small.
