• Subiect: AVAR WARRIORS IN NORTH-WEST ROMANIA DURING THE VII th – VIII th CENTURIES. NOTES ON THE POLITICAL STATUS OF THE NORTH-WESTERN TERRITORY OF ROMANIA DURING THE VII th – VIII th CENTURIES In the north-western territory of Romania (Fig. 1), four sites were recorded where cemeteries and graves were discovered, which, based on the grave-goods, belonged, beyond any doubt, to Avar warriors. The archaeological remains come from: Căuaş, Dindeşti, Săcueni/Veresdomb, Valea lui Mihai/Rétalj (see table 1 and the catalogue of nds). According to the chronology of the metal pieces, the Avar warrior graves from north-west Romania may be framed in the last two great periods within the evolution of the Avar Khaganate (Table 2). Northwest Romania lay on the periphery of the “political border” of the Avar Khaganate. Very likely, the north-western corner of Romania represented a territory which politically was subordinated to the secondary Avar centre of power located on the territory of the city of Nyíregyháza, on the Upper Tisza. From there, high-ranking warriors within the hierarchy of the Khaganate, like the ones from Valea lui Mihai/Rétalj, Căuaş, and Dindeşti were sent to control the human communities in the north-western areas of Romania.
