The current paper will explore the women’s burials discovered in the Sultana-Malu Roşu cemetery (c. 5000-4000 cal. BC) from multiple perspectives (e.g., body positions, orientations, grave structures, grave goods and offerings, palaeodemographic data and the spatial location of the graves in the cemetery area). The aim of this integrated approach i...

The tell settlement from “Măgura Gumelnița” is the eponymous site of the Eneolithic civilization with the same name. It is probably the biggest tell settlement North of the Danube, and it belonged to the Kodjadermen ‐ Gumelnița ‐ Karanovo VI civilization that occupied in the Balkan area in the second half of 5th millennium BC. In 2017, a complex in...

This paper focuses on Eneolithic child burials discovered in the Sultana-Malu Roşu cemetery, southeastern Romania (c. 5000–4000 cal. BC). The associated burial practices may implicitly re ect, through the inclusion of grave goods or other features such as the treatment of the body and the position of the burial within the funerary area, the potenti...

his paper focuses on the Eneolithic children burials discovered in the Sultana-Malu Rosu cemetery, Romania (ca. 5000-4000 cal BC). These burial practices may implicitly reflect, through grave goods or other features (such as body treatment and position within the funerary area), the potential symbolic significance of children and their connection t...

Project
The project "Interdisciplinary Institutional Platform for Excellence in Research, Development, Innovation and Professional Training in Archaeological Sciences (ArchaeoScience # RO)" aims at introducing a field of research unmatched yet at the university level in our country – Archaeological Sciences. The project will be run during the 2018-2020 period, through the Research Institute of the University of Bucharest (ICUB). The ICUB will provide the implementation of the project affiliated research group bringing together specialists from several departments – Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, History, Geology and Geophysics, in collaboration with the Department of Psychology and Educational Sciences and with the logistic support offered by The IT & C Directorate and the Research Program Management Division. The implementation of the project "Interdisciplinary Institutional Platform of Excellence in Research, Development, Innovation and Professional Training in the Field of Archaeological Sciences" implies the development of a common platform, facilitating the complex, interdisciplinary and integrative approach of the archaeological cultural heritage, by means of conducting research and training in archaeological and material immaterial cultural heritage (mobile and immobile). Following the implementation of this project, the University of Bucharest will be the first university in Romania to address the field of Archaeological Sciences. This approach represents an excellent opportunity to connect Romania to the existing research directions and programs in other European Union countries and around the world, in the context of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage. The platform proposed for development will integrate a systematic, inter-, multi- and trans-disciplinary scientific research direction, organized by the Departments of History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, Geology and Geophysics of the University of Bucharest, in order to meet the current Romanian and European needs, in line with the international trends. The research teams in the field of Archaeological Sciences from the departments mentioned above will be organised as five Research, Development, Innovation and Educational Training Units, grouped under the following sub-disciplines: i). Bioarchaeology – will address research directions such as archaeobotany, zooarchaeology, palaeoanthropology, palaeomicrobiology and paleoparasitology; ii). Geoarchaeology – will address research directions such as geomorphology, sedimentology, palaeohidrography, palaeogeography, palaeoenvironmental reconstructions, palaeorelief and landscape; iii). The Material Culture Studies – will address the research directions related to virtually all of the archaeometric analyses of monuments, archaeological artefacts and ecofacts (e.g. petrography, mineralogy, chromatography, XRF, XRD, FTIR, SEM-EDX, RAMAN, PIXE, etc.); iv). Digital Archaeology – will address research directions such as GIS analyses, statistical approaches, mathematical models, 3D modelling and reconstruction, non-intrusive prospects; v). Molecular Archaeology – will address the research directions related to the isotopic study of ecofacts and artefacts, paleogenetic analyses (aDNA) and residual analyses.
Project
The current project represents an original inter-, pluri-, multi-, and transdisciplinary approach of the Domain 6 problematics – Cultural identity and heritage. Through its structure and management, the goals put forth by the component projects, its synergies and complementarities, the project has, undoubtedly, a high degree of accomplishment, being a complex, integrative and exhaustive approach for Romania. Its results will have a great deal of impact within both national and international scientific communities and the general audience, contributing through the anticipated activities to strengthening, developing and perfecting the CDI system in our country, as well as, to the professional formation of the future Romanian researchers. Projects final goal is to provide a complex multidisciplinary inter-institutional platform for integrative and systematic research of the identities and tangible and non-tangible cultural heritage in Romania. The Consortium that will implement this complex project is coordinated by the University of Bucharest (CO-UB), in joint partnership with the Institute of Archaeology “Vasile Pîrvan” of the Romanian Academy (P1-IAB), National Research-Development Institute for Physics and Nuclear Engineering” Horai Hulubei” (P2-IFIN-HH), University” Al. I. Cuza” Iași (P3-UAIC), West University Timișoara (P4-UVT), National Institute of Materials Physics (P5-INCDFM), National Institute for Research and Development in Informatics – ICI Bucrești (P6-ICI), University ”Ovidius” Constanța (P7-UOC) and University of Oradea (P8-UO). The geographical distribution Romanian wise ensures, without a doubt, a good regional representation of the juridical entities extant in the consortium. This partnership between 5 universities and 3 national research institutes signifies an ideal combination for the sustainability and the implementation of such a complex project.
