New contributions about the Early Bronze Age in Transylvania

Summary/Abstract: The study presents new E.B.A. finds from Central and South-West parts of Transyvania. The bowl from Cuci could be related to Livezile group, which belongs to the first stage of the EBA , together with the Zabala and early Schneckenberg culture. The pottery from Metes – “Piatra Pesterii” still has some Livezile patterns, but it belongs to the Copaceni-type discoveries, which could be considered as a late stage of the Livezile group, rather than a separate cultural unit. The pottery found at Aiud – “Cetatuie” is hard to be assigned to a particular EBA group, but some of the pottery shapes may be related to the finds from Alba Iulia and Glogoresti. The pottery from Cicau has many Copaceni-type characteristics, but there are also a few pots rather late, as the jug decorated with small jnobs or a bowl with tunnel-shaped handle. The bowl from Aiud – “Castelul Bethlen”, due to its textile-impressed decoration, belongs to the Iernut group, dated in the last stage of the EBA.
