Summary/Abstract: Extracting clues from the diachronic mapping of fortified sites and tumuli groups, against the background of historical and ethnographic references to old roads and accessible salt resources, we investigated if the mineralogical contrast existent between a rich in salt area from south-east Transylvania and its poor in salt neighbours, had as consequence the emergence of power centres which could have organized and controlled a system of salt transportation and supply.
