The Late Antiquity fort at the village of Cherven is one of the hundreds anonymous fortifications, localized within the territory of Second Moesia. The fort is located 25 km to the south of Rousse, immediately to the north of the present village of Cherven, on a high rock plateau, in a meander of the Cherni Lom River. The site became known for the science as early as the end of the 19th century, when it was visited by the Hungarian traveller F. Kanitz, who presumed that the ruins of the Medieval town are lying over an earlier fortress. After the Liberation of Bulgaria, the site was visited by K. Skorpil as well. He generalized his observations in his work, dedicated to the antiquities along the Rousse Lom river stream.
