Malaja Kopaňa, Ukraine

Important fortification of the Late Latène and the beginning of the Roman Empire on the Chustsko-Rokov Mountains on the right bank of the river Tisa. The ramparts belong to the Dacian ramparts of the type "DAVA", it was founded around the middle of the 1st century BC. Its origin is associated with the advance of the Dacian tribes to the north after their consolidation and strengthening of their power in Transylvania. In its heyday, it was an important centre of production and power for the Dacian settlement in Carpathian Ukraine. The ramparts were destroyed by a great fire and its settlement ended at the beginning of the 2nd century A.D. The decline of the special position and the decline of the ramparts is due to the change of the political situation and order in the eastern part of the Carpathian Basin, which was caused by the Dacian-Roman wars and the subsequent emergence of the province of Dacia.
