Abstract

The Trinca «Izvorul lui Luca» site is an archaeological object with several cultural and chronological horizons, including the late Hallstatt period. The settlement of this period is attributed to the Western Podolian / Podolian-Moldavian cultural group and is the only one investigated in the Northern Moldavian Plateau. The investigations have revealed a number of complexes (dwellings, auxiliary structures, platforms, hearths, and pits), artifacts made of various raw materials (clay, sand, stone, bone, and metal — bronze and iron), a considerable amount of other archaeological remains (pottery, osteological material, stones, fragments of fired clay, etc.) The detailed and overall analysis of all elements specific to the material culture gives us novel information about the way of living, the architectonics of the dwellings, and so on. All this plays a very important role in the research of the cultural and historical processes of the late Hallstatt period in the East Carpathian region in general and in the Northern Moldavian Plateau in particular. The results undoubtedly confirm once again that this region was a zone of cultural interference between the late Hallstatt communities (Thracian) in the Carpathian-Dniester area and the communities in the forest—steppe on the right bank of the Dnieper that existed simultaneously with them.
