|The Vadastra Culture
Dispersion of the culture
and principle sites.
Setting : The Vadastra is found in Romania in part of Oltenia and to
the northern center of Bulgaria.
Habitation : The known settlements are in diverse locations; tells appear towards the end of the evolution of this culture, some surrounded by ditches for defense. The houses are either buried deeply in the ground (in the first phase) or built at ground level as in the case of the tells.
Material Means : The ceramic, black or gray, is remarkably decorative, with incisions and encrusted with a white clay. Some copper objects have been discovered.
Economics : The economy is characterized by agriculture, already incorporating the use of animals for labor and tilling, a full implementation of animal breeding, hunting and gathering.
