Sándor Berecki. The Bronze Age Site from Luduş (Bibliotheca Mvsei Marisiensis. Series Archaeologica X)


     The prehistoric site at Luduș is situated along the middle Mureş Valley. The monograph offers a complex analysis of the archaeolocial remains as well as a synthesis on the cultural evolution in Transylvania between 1800 and 1400 BC. One of the main characteristics of the Bronze Age is highlighted: the constant dispersal of individuals and ideas, which made the development of a unitary ceramic style possible, spread over the whole intra-Carpathian area.
