Rezumat. În acest articol sunt supuse atenţiei câteva materiale arheologice din aşezarea specifică bronzului târziu de la Oglinzi-Faţa Slatinei (judeţul Neamţ). În vecinătatea acestui sit se găsesc câteva izvoare de apă sărată, iar autorii discută despre posibilitatea existenţei unei legături între aşezarea de la Oglinzi şi exploatarea acestei resurse. Din cadrul acestui sit au fost recuperate mai multe fragmente ceramice, unelte de piatră, obiecte din os şi corn precum şi câteva piese de lut. Descoperirile de la Oglinzi-Faţa Slatinei, în special ceramica, oferă anumite repere care pot indica o anumită specializare a comunităţii care a locuit în acest punct.

Obiecte legate de activitatea metalurgică din așezarea specifică bronzului târziu de la Gârbovăț (jud. Galați) Vasile Diaconu, Daniela Alecsa

Diaconu, Alecsa 2016

Abstract. The question of metallurgy in the Late Bronze Age in the eastern area beyond the Carpathians has not been studied in depth in regards to metal objects. Little is known about the artifacts used in the metallurgical process and for this reason the authors of this article have republished information about some of these objects. Many of the categories of objects of the Noua culture in Gârbovăț (Galați county) have been analysed yet some of them have only recently been found. These include a clay nozzle from a bellows (tuyere), spoons which were probably used in the moulding process, a crucible, several moulds made of stone and clay, along with several stone grinders. The fact that these objects were recovered during older fieldwork and that the archaeological context in which they were found is not known limit the conclusions which can be drawn concerning specialized workshops for producing bronze items. 

Butonii de os şi corn descoperiţi în mediul culturii Noua Vasile Diaconu, Mariana Sîrbu

Abstract. The authors of this paper analyzed bone and antler buttons found in the territory of the Noua culture (the Late Bronze Age). Twelve finds are known; most objects are scattered in the area between the Prut and the Eastern Carpathians. From a technological standpoint, these artifacts are mostly made of bone with only one piece being made of antler. As well, almost all the items are decorated with meanders, circles and rays, which are solar symbols. Such items appear during the Bronze Age over a vast geographical area, and one of the common elements is the spiral-meander pattern. Bone and antler buttons found within the territory of Noua culture are rooted in the Monteoru culture. Regarding the context discovery, most of the buttons were found in settlements, except a single button, which was found among the grave goods of a burial. In terms of function, three possible uses can be identified: as amulets, as accessories for clothing, and as accessories for harnesses. The ornaments on these objects, which are also found on other types of items that are specific to the Late Bronze Age (e.g. – bridle cheek pieces, axe-scepters, dagger handles, spindle whorls), confirm the existence of a solar cult during the period in question.
