Summary/Abstract: On the archaeological map of Romania there are certainly many white spots. We do not think it's worth talking about all the causes that are responsible for this. It is hoped that a series of evidenced elements will be discussed during the archaeological research carried out in Bucşani and Crevedia Mare (Giurgiu district). In practice, our area of interest is limited to the south by the confluence of Neajlov with Dâmbovnic and to the north, in the subjective way, by the general level curve of 100 m. From a geomorphological point of view this area is very well individualized. The natural boundaries as the valley is the terraces of Neajlov is also the Neajlov-Dâmbovnic interfluve and the Dâmbovnic valley on these last 4 km draw a unitary area. On 8.5 km of bird-like valley, between the confluence with Dâmbovnic south of Vadu Lat and north of Dealu village the valley has a width between 0.6 and 1.6 km. The terraces are high and steep and the marsh rate is higher in this stretch of Neajlov. All these particularities are unique for the middle course of Neajlov. Moreover, they imposed a certain density of Gumelniţa tells and rather their stratigraphic and therefore historical evolution.
