Summary/Abstract: The tell settlement from “Măgura Gumelnița” is the eponymous site of the Eneolithic civilization with the same name. It is probably the biggest tell settlement North of the Danube, and it belonged to the Kodjadermen ‐ Gumelnița ‐ Karanovo VI civilization that occupied in the Balkan area in the second half of 5th millennium BC. In 2017, a complex interdisciplinary project resumed the research of the Gumelnița site. The project was led by a consortium which comprises The Gumelnița Civilization Museum, The Bucharest Municipality Museum, and The National Institute of the Heritage, alongside specialists from other Romanian institutions (Institute of Archaeology “Vasile Pârvan” Bucharest, National History Museum of Romania, University of Bucharest, “Al. I. Cuza” University of Iași, “Valahia” University in Târgoviște, “Horia Hulubei” National Institute for Nuclear Physics and Engineering, and National Museum of Eastern Carpathians). The current paper will present the preliminary interdisciplinary results of the 2017 archaeological campaign.
