.What looks to be a something akin to a Roman Marching Camp has been located in Bulgaria in Southern Europe.  Called the Sistra Complex, it appears to have been designed to house traveling dignitaries, and as such, it features a large heated pool, hypocaust heated quarters where not only is the poor heated, the walls are heated as well. There are stables from Thracian horsemen, and a complex water diverting masonry that supplies fresh water from the Osam River. And what else travelled with dignitaries? Money. Gold coins bearing the image of Honorius dated to 402 AD.
