Summary/Abstract: The study offers the present state of research regarding the Cugir - Band cultural group, which is characteristic for the Late Bronze Age in the central and South-Western parts of Transylvania. Fourteen sites have been identified so far, including one cremation cemetery. The three radiocarbon dates from Miceşti, Teiuş and Turdaş point towards the 12th century calBC. Thus, it mainly follows the Noua culture in the central and south-western regions and it might be contemporary with the very beginning of the Gáva culture, as the two dates from Alba Iulia and Teleac seem to indicate. A clear Cugir - Band heritage can be detected in the Gáva-style ceramics otherwise.
