TITLU în românăCâteva consideraţii preliminare privind gestionarea spaţiului în aşezarea eponimă a culturii Gumelniţa
ExcerptMăgura Gumelnita (the site that gave the name to the Eneolithic civilization flourishing in the Balkan Peninsula and evolving during the second half of the 5th millennium B.C.), is located on the Danube Valley, ca. 3.5 km northeast of the Olteniţa Municipality. Recent archaeological investigations suggest that Măgura, in order to be inhabited during prehistoric times, had three terraces cut on its slopes and populated with dwellings. The top plateau also housed 1 to 3 circular rows of houses,
while in the central part was a sanctuary and an unoccupied area for various community activities. The settlement was fortified on all sides with a ditch, rampart and palisade. Such organization performed after a predetermined plan is specific for proto-urban settlements and suggests that this community knew social differentiation and perhaps had a leader with authority over neighboring communities.
