• Subiect: „Through this study we aimed to present two fortresses, Fundul Văii - Cetatea Zmeilor (com. Lipovăţ) respectively Popeni - Valea Bujorani (com. Zorleni), both located on the territory of Vaslui county. Both fortresses, judging by their characteristics as well as by the material recovered, seem to belong to the beginning of the Early Iron Age. The first of the forts – Cetatea Zmeilor - is located on a promontory, and is defended on the accessible way by two semicircular sets of ramparts and ditches, having a total area of around 1 ha. The archaeological materials recovered through field survey belong to the Cucuteni Culture and to the Early Iron Age. The Early Iron Age ceramic material, but especially the planimetric similarities that the „Cetatea Zmeilor” presents with other similar objectives from the East-Carpathian space dated certainly in this interval, are arguments for a preliminary dating in the Early Iron Age. The Valea Bujorani fort is located in the Bujorani valley, occupying a slightly atypical position from a military point of view. The enclosed area is around 55 hectares, and the ditch and rampart presents in the southern area traces of intense fire. The archaeological material that was recovered during the field survey belongs to the Noua Culture of the Late Bronze Age and to the Chişinău - Corlăteni Culture of the Early Iron Age. Since the bearers of the Noua Culture did not build forts, a dating at the beginning of the Early Iron Age seems much more likely. Through its size, the Bujorani fort is among the largest known fortifications in the prehistory and protohistoric of the East-Carpathian regions of Romania.”
