Early History

Archaeological findings trace the very early history of habitation on Romanian territory to some one or two million years ago (Valea Dîrjovului, Bugiulesti, the area of rivers Olt and Oltetz in Oltenia). The process of anthropogenesis occurred in the area encompassed by the Wooded Carpathians, the Danube, and the Black Sea.Vestiges of Neolithic cultures (Boian-Gumelnita in the Romanian Plain and the Dobrudja, Cucuteni-Ariusd in Moldavia and Eastern Transylvania, and Turdas-Petresti in Transylvania, Banat and Oltenia) have one element in common, namely, a polychrome pottery of exquisite beauty and remarkable technical achievement.
