 Summary:
 Viminacium archaeological park is located near the mouth of the Mlava and the Danube river, near present-day Kostolac, 12 km from Pozarevac. Viminacium was the largest town in Upper Moesia and an important military centre. Roman military camp and the town were built in the first century and lasted until the beginning of the seventh century; it was one of the most important legion camps on the Danube, and for a time the capital of the Roman province of Upper Moesia. A great number of restored structures, monumental as well as various adjoining ones which were later added or they intersect and overlay them, testify on intensive building activities. The purpose of the work is to indicate, through the critical analysis and evaluation, the advantages and disadvantages of certain approaches of protection and presentation of the remains, the integration of the old - new at the archaeological site Viminacium, as well as at other sites in our surroundings, but also to identify the elements which should be incorporated into the future conduct of protection and presentation of archaeological sites in order to change and improve certain approaches. New approaches have to follow more consistently recent international charters and recommendations, and should be based on contemporary trends in protection, revitalization and presentation of archaeological sites, which is particularly reflected in the adoption of the Master Plan as a prerequisite for action, more liberal application of new materials and new constructive structures in protection and reconstruction, application of modern technologies (3D animation) in the presentation of the sites and the like. This research will be a significant contribution to the objective and critical analysis of the main modern methodological approaches and the achieved results in the sphere of protection, revitalization and presentation of Viminacium archaeological park, as well as to future approaches in other archaeological sites in Serbia and in the region.
