Personal adornments are an inexhaustible source of reflection because by means of these objects, we can identify the symbolic behavior of the prehistoric groups, but they can reflect and some socio-economic aspects of these communities or they may become the markers of borders and the network trades in Prehistory. This project aims to analyse the prehistoric personal ornaments from the Northern Danube territory, following several aspects: 1. characterisation of prehistoric societies, in particular their social organisation, exchange systems and cultural units, through the study of personal ornaments found in necropolis and settlements; 2. creation of experimental reference collections for the study of prehistoric personal ornaments; 3. taphonomic and technological analyses, microscopy, SEM+EDS analysis, FTIR and RAMAN spectroscopy etc. Chronologically, the project will focus on the Neolithic and Eneolithic from the Northern Danube territory (ca. 6300-3500 cal. BC.), however, our studies will extend beyond this period. The purpose of this project is to explore and identify the transformations in the picture of the adornments for understanding the factors which determined the use of some raw materials and technique as opposed to other possible variants. We will also try to identify, where possible, the moment they appeared and were abandoned in the target region, all this in order to determine the cultural and temporal limits of certain types of ornaments, place of origin, exchanges and circulation routes, etc. Following this path, we would like to answer the question: can the adornments be used as indicators of particular cultural phenomena in the prehistory of the Northen Danubian territory?
