“The Gold of the Dacians and Two Wars that Built the Forum Traiani in Rome”
In the 1st century BC, the fabled riches of Dacia, present-day Romania, became irresistible to the expanding Roman Empire. It took Rome, under Trajan, two wars to vanquish them and establish colonies that were integrated into the Empire and cleared the path for a series of historic events that led at last to the development of the modern Romanian people.
Maria Hunciag is the former Arts Curator of the Romanian National Fine Art Museum in Bucharest, Romania. Today, she holds the position of Art Specialist at the Public Library in Troy, Michigan, where she develops, manages and coordinates multicultural and arts programs and special events.
