"Trajan's Wall", Dobruja

"Trajan's Wall", Dobruja​






Trajan's Wall (Valul lui Traian in Romanian) is the name used for several linear earthen fortifications (valla) found across Eastern Europe, in Moldova, Romania, and Ukraine. Contrary to the name and popular belief, the ramparts were not built by Romans during Trajan's reign. Furthermore, the association with the Roman Emperor may be a recent scholarly invention, only entering the imagination of the locals with the national awakening of the 19th century. Mediaeval Moldavian documents referred to the earthworks as Troian, likely in reference to a mythological hero in the Romanian and Slavic folklore.




There are three valla in Romania, in south-central Dobruja, extending from the Danube to the Black Sea coast, of 61, 54 and 59 km lenght. Scholars place their erection at different dates in the Early Mediaeval period, in the second half of the first millennium. Bulgarian historiography considers the fortifications were built by the First Bulgarian Empire as a defence against the various nomad groups roaming the North-Pontic steppes. On the other hand, several Romanian historians have tried to attribute at least part of the walls to the Byzantine Empire under emperors John I Tzimisces and Basil II, which controlled the region in the second part of the 10th century and throughout the 11th.

The commune Valu lui Traian (formerly Hasancea) is named after the vallum.
