Cercetările arheologice de suprafaţă de la Şuţeşti, judeţul Brăila. Punctul Terasa I

  • Subiect: In this article the author reveals a new founded point of archaeological interest. The spot was identified as the result of an systematic field research conducted form the archaeological team who investigate the other sites from Şuţeşti, called Val (turf wall) and Popina (erosion witness from the Buzău River Valley). Basically it is spoken about a large settlement situated on a dominant terrace that advance deep in the old Buzău River Valley. From the surface were gathered many materials, pottery fragments mainly, but iron tools, fragments of glass recipients, an bronze toilet knife, an chalcedony bead, an bronze, fragmentary recipient too. The study of the archaeological materials conduct to the idea of a settlement having tree different levels of existing. The first one and the most recent one dates from the medieval ages. The second one refers to the Dridu Culture, easily recognized by the specific ornamentation of the pottery fragment. The last one and the oldest one dates from the period of Sântana de Mureş Culture. This it seems to be the most documented level, judging about the richness of the archaeological materials gathered. On the one hand, these discoveries reveals an large and long time habitation, and on the other hand, the „imported” Roman artefact conduct us to the idea of an prosper community. Reflected on this short presentation, it seems necessary to perform an systematic investigation of the new spotted point, first of all from protection reasons because the site is on an agrarian field which is ploughed every year, and secondly because, in spite that Sântana de Mureş Culture is well documented in Brăila Conty, until now no systematic investigations were made.
