• Subiect: The author presents two shaft-hole axes discovered by metal detectors, near Bistriţa town. The first piece was discovered on a hilltop (Pintic Hill), it is kept fragmentary, the sleeve and the edge are broken from ancient times. The second one, preserved entirely, was discovered in Sigmir village, in an isolated area, outside a prehistoric settlement. Given the fact that both artefacts miss their archaeological contexts, the only way for a chronological analysis, is the typological criterion. Based on their technical features, the pieces were dated in the middle of the Bronze Age, and could be placed in the Hajdúsámson-Apa horizon. Considering the place of discovery, Northern Transylvania and the fact that the best analogies are found in the Pădureni type, we include them as part of this type of classification. From the analysis of the Pădureni type discoveries it was concluded that in Transylvania this type of axes are characteristic of the Wietenberg culture, especially in the first half of the Middle Bronze Age. In a brief analysis of the Wietenberg type discoveries around Bistriţa, we tried to identify a contemporary settlement and a possible place where they were produced. At this stage of research the most probable settlement was the one from Bistriţa-Dealul Târgului, which probably played the role of a zonal centre.
