 Summary:
 Late ancient imperial palace of Felix Romuliana (Gamzigrad), the endowment of the Roman emperor Galerius, was built in eastern Serbia, in the valley of the Timok, in a small geographic area of Crna Reka, 11 km from Zaječar. A great number of structures, both monumental which are chronologically connected to original and later fortresss, and various adjoining ones which were later added or they intersect and overlay them, testify on intensive building activities. Due to its Outstanding Universal Value, the archeological site of Gamzigrad was inscribed on the World Heritage List of UNESCO in 2007. The purpose of the work is to illustrate, through the critical analysis and evaluation, the advantages and disadvantages of certain methods of protection and presentation of the remains, the integration of the old - new at the archaeological site of Felix Romuliana, as well as to identify the elements to be incorporated into the future attitude toward protection and presentation of archeological sites in order to change and improve particular methods. This research will make a significant contribution to the objective and critical review of main contemporary methodological approaches and accomplished results in the field of protection, revitalization and presentation of the Felix Romuliana archaeological site, as well as to the future methods to other archaeological sites in Serbia and the region.
