The gold used for the treasures found at Mycenae almost certainly came from the Apuseni Mountains in Western Romania. At Rosia Montana, a Canadian mining company, with the connivance of the Romanian government, is proposing to blow up five mountains in order to remove, by open-cast mining, what remains of the gold. In the process, Roman archaelogical remains, part of a common European heritage, and some of the most beautiful landscape in Europe will be destroyed. Sherban Cantacuzino, born in Romania and a graduate of Magdalene College, Cambridge where he read architecture, is the founder and president of Pro-Patrimonio which was set up to preserve Romania`s natural and built heritage.
