Abstract. This study investigates bronze from archaeological sites from Arad area (RO), Șpălnaca archeological site (Alba County, RO) and Drajna de Jos (Prahova County, RO) and tries to make a link with geological sources of raw material. The samples referred to in this article are from two museums located in Romania. This study presents results of...

From the south, near the Oltina lake and up to the northwest of Hârșova, in the Baroi hill, there are numerous and wide openings of geological deposits, with remarkable paleontological values, but also archaeological sites of great importance. Most paleontological sites-some of which are specifically regulated by Law 5/2000 (as reserve), contain im...

From a scientific point of view, most paleontological sites in Dobrogea are well documented in terms of scientific value (fossil content and geological framework, educational, aesthetic and even commercial value, as described in previous works) and in terms of area (established by law: surface, location). This paper brings an update of some sites i...

The Abator Quarry from Hârșova (România) is part of the natural exposure of the Baroi Hill on the Danube bank, integrated in the ROSCI0022 "Canaralele Dunării" protected area. The present study represents a scientific reassessment, as well as an analysis of the ecotourism potential of this site. A series of geological and paleontological studies ha...

The natural form under which iron disulphide is ordered is isometric (pyrite) or orthorhombic (marcasite). The most common case is where the form of crystallization is represented by pyrite (cubes or radial and framboidal arrangements). The degree of alteration of the samples is variable, mainly related to the actual amount of pyrite, as well as re...

The Sinaia Formation sedimentary deposits are abundant in fossils that are important not only for Romania, but also for international paleontological correlations and interpretation. Four fossil abundant sites placed in the area of the Bucegi Natural Park are considered in this paper: one of them is an already declared Geological and Biological Mon...

Among the heavy minerals present in the finest granular fraction of the sands from Letea levee it has been discovered a grain composed by goethite and marcasite. At a closer look (analyzed with an electronic microscope) this grain presented a particular framboidal structure that raised some question marks. After looking up through the related liter...

Lead isotopic ratios of cassiterite, the dominant ore of tin, evolve after crystallization through decay of uranium (U) and thorium (Th) to lead (Pb), due to the relatively elevated U/Pb ratios of this mineral. We show that the Pb isotopic ratios of smelted tin at Rooiberg, South Africa, form an isochron with a model age that matches the known geol...

This is a metallographic and chemical study on two metal ingots, one from Şpălnaca dated as Late Bronze Age and one from Arad area dated in the Middle Bronze Age. The analyses confirmed that the alloy is a week alloyed copper (with iron, antimony and some other trace elements).

This studdy is a geological point of view on bronze from archaeological objects found in the Romanian territory and it is intended to determine, if so, the local origin of the raw material.

The subject is not new in the international literature, so it shouldn’t need an “introduction”. For theRomanian conservators the subject is not new, by itself, but special studies in the field have not beendone. The paper aims only to make the first step forward. Doubtfully interesting abroad, it is rendered inRomanian, to be sure that at least som...
