Arutela Roman Camp

Calimanesti, judetul Valcea


The Roman camp Arutela is a historical monument, located in the town Pausa, point "Bivolari Poiana", beside the city Calimanesti.
It dates from the Roman Age, the years 137-138 A.C. The Military Museum conducted systematic research campaigns in the years 1967-1970 and 1978.

Camp Arutela ensures circulation on the Olt Valley, to Transylvania and represented along with other camps around Massif Cozia a line of defense to stop attacks from the hilly area of the East. 

In the north part of the camp was "Teofil's peak", on whose plateau was built a half-round tower, with the right side to the east, 300 m height from the point "Poiana Bivolari". This tower, Olt oriented, had the role of monitoring the entrance gate, to the Dacia Superior, in the same time ensures tracking traffic to Camp Traiana (Daesti). Archaeological evidence indicates that, since antiquity, Olt waters destroyed the western side of the camp, inducing the withdrawal of the Roman garrison from here.

The first diggings in point "Poiana Bivolari" were made by the Ministry of Estates, in the years 1888-1889, to capture thermal sulphurous waters. They found metal objects and Roman coins from Hadrian, Septimiu Sever, Iulia Doamna, Caracalla. In the years 1891-1892, Gr. Tocilescu and P. Polonic make partial diggings and the Camp remains known only by the epigraphic material found here.

Between 1897-1902, Arutela Camp is partially destroyed because of the construction of the railway Ramnicu Valcea - Raul Vadului.
In 1967, the Military Museum reopens the reasearch site, opportunity that allowed the complete uncovering of the ruins which were destroyed during the railway construction.

Between 1982-1983, the Camp was rebuilt by the architect Aurel Teodorescu, after the documents drawn by Cr. M. Vladescu, the coordinator of the researchs previously done by the Military Museum. The construction works were performed by C. Panco.  "Porta Praetoria" was reconstituted for the first time, with the two towers which flanks it.
