• Subiect: Summary: The Târzia archaeological site (Brusturi-Drăgăneşti comm., Neamţ county) is situated in the proximity of the first houses in the South of the locality with the same name (Pl. 1 ). Our initial research had resulted in the identification in the field of a number of the 16 funerary mounds, mostly affected by the tillage works (Pl. 2). Our own archaeological excavations had been initiated in 1977 (in tumulus no. 1) and had been continued in 1979 (in tumuli no. 2, 3, 4, 5). The monuments discovered at Târzia had been assigned to the "Culture of Carpathian tumuli", which is knownby both by its funerary rite and ritual and by the chronological and cultural assignement of the grave goods. Within the same range had been also identified other faur necropoles belonging to the same culture (at Botoşana and Boroaia, in the Suceava county and at Branişte and Gura Secului, in the Neamţ county). In 1982 we had resumed the excavations, but most of the remaining tumuli were destroyed by the tillage works. We had explored 6 other mounds (no. 7-11), in which, just sporadically, the in situ remnants of archaeological complexes could be detected. This was the reason why we had given up the archaeological excavations. In the following li nes, we had insisted just upon the tumulus no. 1 O, inside of which severa) ceramic fragments (Pis. 3-4), a flint blade (Pl. 3/21), a gamish (Pl. 3/20) and a spur (Pl. 3/22), both made of iron, could be found. As already mentioned, it appeared a fragmentary iron spur (Pl. 5/1-2). Its main body has a horse-shue-shape, while ist two rods are arched towards the inner side; the central part of the metal band had been widened and pierced for fixing a chonical spike, but also ended with three omamental "nicked". The opposite part, right above the spike, had been broken and lost, this being the attachment knob. The other two attachement knobs are missing also from the ends of the spur's branches. The closest analogies of the spur from Târzia seem to be, un tii now, those discovered at Leuna: a pur with three attachment knobs and a spike (Nietknopfspor mit Dreipunkthalterung mit Dornfortsatz), in the variant C (Eastern RomanProvincial = ostlich-provinzialromische Variante), being dated in the 4th century AD (Pl. 6). The origin of this type of spurs seems to have been the Roman provincial milieu, especially the zone of the Pannonic limes (Pl. 7). Until now, the item from Târzia is the Eastem most presence of this type.
