• Subiect: Among the articles of clothing coming from the Barcea necropolis, Galati county, fibulas are particularly important, due to their variety. A number of 60 fibulas were found in the 167 tombs discovered in the necropolis, 58 of which in incineration and inhumation tombs and 2 scattered. The type could only be determined for 47 of the fibulas, the rest of them being too deteriorated from oxidation over a long period of time. The majority of the fibulas were made of bronze, silver, silver coated with gold leaf and iron. The position of the fibulas on the skeleton differs from one tomb to another; on the left or the right side of the chest, under the shoulder blade, under the skull or even among the receptacles surrounding the skeleton. Nine inhumation tombs contained one pair of fibulas each, near the left and right collar bones (this is the case of tombs 12, 18, 71, 104, 127, 129, 131, 148); two unmatched fibulas were found in each of the tombs 50, 105 and 116. In tomb 127, the two fibulas were both on the right side, one on the right shoulder and the other one on the ribs. Depending on their construction, the fibulas from the Barcea necropolis, dating from the 4th century A. D. may be classified into five types: Type I – fibulas with the foot bent underneath and wrapped (tied foot) Type II – fibulas with a fixed pinholder Type III – fibulas with semi-circular head and diamond-shape foot Type IV – fibulas with onion-shape knobs Type V – iron fibulas For some types of fibulas, variants or even sub-variants that developed in this period of time can be identified. Fibulas and other clothing accessories such as buckles as well as combs or drinking glasses will help establish a relative chronology of the bi-ritual Barcea necropolis, which belongs to the Late Antiquity.
