In order to find a large amount of ash in camp, it was concluded that this fort was destroyed by a fire.


In the Harman are plenty of places to visit. From Lempes Hill Nature Reserve at Monument Romans in the two World Wars and the famous fortified church. But nothing compares to the history of this place is lost in history. Archaeological site here which includes a civil settlement from the Bronze Age (Wietenberd) and a civil settlement of Eneolithic (Hill scrapping) – and the list does not stop there – looks like a hearth area has been continuously inhabited. Research shows that the local population lives on the old Roman Dacia.
