New renovation works were carried out in 2020 at the collapsed storeroom from the archaeological camp at the ancient city of Histria, Romania, where rebuilding activities had been started by Eurocentrica in 2019. Thus, the building gets closer to the objectives aimed by researchers: the enhancement of the storage capacity of the mobile archaeological heritage, as well as a new space configuration which will allow the preliminary study of artefacts in optimal conditions.
The renovation works of this year, whose beneficiary was the Museum of National History and Archaeology of Constanţa, who administers the archaeological camp of Histria, took place in the project “Support for the archeological research at the ancient city of Histria 2020”, funded through the main sponsorship provided by Trident Pharma Ltd. and several other donations and volunteering activities of individuals, especially from the local community of Constanța.
After the walls of the storeroom had been renovated in 2019, in 2020 the roof was renewed and new doors and windows were added. Moreover, the floors of the rooms where artifacts will be stored were repaired or replaced and the courtyard was cleaned and got a new fence, which will help protect the archaeological heritage.
The first artifacts that needed protection have already found their place in the storeroom or in the courtyard, but for this small complex to become fully operational, some other renovation works and equipment purchases are needed. There activities are planned for 2021.
