In recent years, a series of students' projects have been carried out at the Faculty of Architecture of Belgrade with aims at protection and investigation of possibilities or presentation of archaeological sites dating from the Roman period, in which Serbia is very rich, and their active inclusion in modern way of life and tourist programs. The project for the revitalization of the Roman military camp Timacum Minus was one of them. It showed that the students' involvement in resolving complex issues of the presentation and revitalization of archaeological remains was fruitful because numerous fresh ideas were obtained in numerous subjects. The focus was on a concept that significant cultural and historic areas with ancient remains were to be presented to both the domestic and foreign public in a modern manner and in interaction with the environment, the natural beauties of the landscape. The projects enable to promote an interactive relation with the historic area as a place where visi...tors, at various activities, meet with history, but also with a reflection of a modern era. .
