Abstract. - Vulnerabilities induced by relief in the location of the roman geosites in Drobeta area. The presence of numerous evidence of anthropogenic interventions in the proximity of Drobeta, during II-VI centuries, were the starting points for developing a strategy for interdisciplinary research of the valences of sites / targets with historic and archaeological potential of this area defined as geosites.The initiative to combine geographical and geomorphological arguments, with the historical and archeological one to envisage the reception of these values in terms of interdisciplinarity, has as a final aim the valuing and enhancement of the geosites in this location.Research results lead to an easier perception of the dependence of human activities of area morphology and of the relief role in locating and arranging Roman geosites. Using specific methods for geomorphology I identified landforms preferred by the Romans for sites location (settlements, fortifications, roads, cemeteries etc.), but also the vulnerability of the geosites and geomorfosites at contemporary geomorphological processes.The analyze performed on the roman architectural ensemble from Drobeta shows a number of impediments or vulnerabilities due to location morphology in the development and settlement of Roman geosite.
