The study fo llows the description and the analysis of the material resu lted fr om two research campaigns and many surface researches. Even the invest igated surface is not large and the excavation zone was levelled mechanically, the stratigraphy and the inventory allows us, fo r this study, a first presentation of the site. The small number of the researched stations within the Moldavian Central Plateau j ustified the choice of this objective for excavations, especially in south, and by the interest for the Cucuteni pottery, painted and o f type C .

The archaeological complexes discovered in the settlement specific to the Cucuteni civilisations, summarises two dwel lings and five p its with different shapes, dated Cucuteni, subphase A3• An exception was the exception of the pit no. l , dated Cucuteni, subphase A-B2, dwelling no. l , phase A (fig. 1 /3), dwelling no.2, phase A (fig. 1 /3 ; 21 1 ), south-south eastern wal l profile (fig.2/2). Pits no. l , Cucuteni, phase A-B and 2-5, Cucuteni subphase A3 (fig. l /3 ; 21 1 -4). The inventory of the discovered complexes and the material found on level or from surface was analysed in four groups: raw materials (3. 1 .), tools and utensils (3.2.), pottery (4. 1 -4) and plasticity (5 .0). The inventory ofthe complexes was presented in appendixes I-VIII. The pottery was analysed differentially too. First, the usual secondary category, containing the pottery species with vegetal rests degreasing substance – the vegetal rests pottery species -, the species of the pots with fine sand mixed with clay, dusty aspect – dusty brick coloured pottery species -, and the one with larger degreasing substance – the dusty pottery species -, specific to the Cucuteni A
(4. 1 . 1 -3) and A-B (4.3) phases. Second, we analysed the main fine, painted pottery categories, with the specific species, establ ished according to the stratigraphic data and the stylistic criterions of the Cucuteni A (4.2) and A-B (4.3) phases, with group mentioning. Above these were added type C ( 4.4) pottery. The pottery inventory was summarised in ten tables.
