Summary/Abstract: In the Saharna micro-zone of the Middle Dniester basin as a result of archaeological investigations and surface research there have been certified 13 fortifications and 14 civilian settlements, which were assigned to the Thraco-Getic communities. Of these are of interest two fortresses (Stohnaia III, Stohnaia IV) and two civilian settlements (Stohnaia V, Stohnaia VI) recently discovered near the village of Stohnaia. The fortifications were located on the high sides of a canyon that comes from the Dniester riverbed inland. For their consolidation, in addition to natural factors, artificial defensive elements of the type “wooden wall with earth and stone filling” were used. Civil settlements were located in the vicinity of the fortifications, forming together an “agglomeration” of sites.
