• Subiect: „The systematic investigations and discoveries made during the last decades have brought to light a large number of archaeological remains of the early Middle Ages. Their introduction into scientific use makes it possible to objectively reconstruct the social-economic, political and cultural life of the Romanian autochthonous communities in the Eastern Carpathian region at the end of the 1st millennium BC and the beginning of the next, but also the nature of contacts and interferences with neighboring communities. In the spring of 2010, about a kilometer from the northeast entrance to the Sadova village, Călăraşi District, Republic of Moldova, on the edge of the forest, there was found a small hoard which included seven iron artifacts representing tools and weapons from the early Middle Ages. The hoard consisted of a hoe, two plowshare shovels, three axes and a knife, all of them of iron. What draws attention to the objects from the hoard is that the hoe and the three axes have a special shaped butt, they are endowed with symmetrical “wings” in the upper part of the butt (along with the side “wings” to strengthen the socket for the handle). Close analogies for this butt model we meet in the axes from Fedeşti, Siliştea Nouă and Jariştea dating back to the 10th-11th centuries. Two of the four axes discovered during the systematic archeological research at the fortified settlement of Echimăuţi have the same butt shape. We believe that the hiding of the Sadova hoard of hand tools and weapons can be associated with one of the invasions of the Cumans, which could have happened in the second half or the last quarter of the 11th century.”
