Summary/Abstract: For several decades after the Second World War the problem of the history of archaeological research is constantly present in the special studies. However, a comprehensive analysis of the history of archeology in the Prut-Dniester space for a long time was not performed. The fi rst work devoted to studies of ancient history and archeology in the period between 1715 and 1945 was carried out by N. Chetraru.The light on the events that took place in the MSSR after the Second World War is shed due to the documents stored in the archives of the Republic of Moldova. In this paper there are presented two important documents: the first one regarding the reforming of the Moldavian Institute of History, Economics, Language and Literature with the creation of a sub-department for History and Archaeology, dated December, 17 1945; the second one is the decision of the Council of People’s Commissars of the Moldavian SSR from December 21, 1945 “On preparation for archaeological research on the territory of the Moldavian SSR in 1946”.
