The Eneolithic lithic industry from northern Dubrudja

Abstract : The archaeological mission « Delta du Danube » is studying for more than six years the coevolution human‐environment in the Danube Delta at the end of the Neolithic. This article offers a synthesis of the main results obtained from the analysis of the Gumelnița lithic industry in the Northern Dobrogea. The authors have taken into consideration both older collections as well as new ones discovered during the excavations deployed in the mentioned archaeological mission, most of all the tell settlement Taraschina (Maliuc commune). This variety of information allowed a good characterization of the Gumelnița lithic series discovered in the north of Dobrogea. The most important characteristic is represented by the import of raw material from the prebalkanic platform situated in the nort h‐east of Bulgaria. These imports were oriented towards blade type products that were later transformed into a variety of finished objects. The typology is dominated by the end‐scraper. A complete technological image will allow integrating the lithic information in the reflections regarding the socio‐economic and environmental changes inside Gumelnița societies.
