Victor Sava. Neolithic and Eneolithic in the Lower Mureş Basin


     The present work is based on a unitary approach of Neolithic and Eneolithic discoveries in the Lower Mureş Basin. From a chronological perspective, it envisages the approximate period of 60003000/2800 cal BC, from the onset of the StarcevoCris Körös pottery until the disappearance of the Baden and Coţofeni pottery.
    This research has two main objectives: publishing the artifacts preserved in the collection of the Museum of Arad and systematizing the information existing in specialized literature regarding the Neolithic and the Eneolithic in the Lower Mureş Basin. Through the systematic approach and the methodology employed the volume presents a classical approach of archaeological discoveries. At the same time, the end goal is to create a starting point for future archaeological approaches in this area.” (from Introduction)
