Dr. Corina Bors, belonging to the National Museum of Romanian History, recently presented an important report on the two large repositories of objects dating back to the Iron Age, which were discovered in the Romanian town of Tartaria in 2012. After investigations it has been determined that the objects found date back to the 8th century BC. and among them we can see weapons and jewelry.

At the meeting, held in the Scottish city of Glasgow, Dr. Bors revealed some of the reasons why this discovery is so extremely important, among which the possibility of knowing more about some of the old connections and trade routes that had stood out. as a starting and finishing point the Carpathian Basin.

Two huge deposits were found, one with 300 and the other with 50 objects respectively and among the finds, in addition to jewelry and weapons, are neck rings, hairpins, bracelets, spear points, ax blades made of iron, horse harness and different tools made of bone.

The different archaeologists participating in this project agree that the choice of the place where these deposits were found is related to a more divine than earthly motive, since they suspect that it was a place where offerings were made to the gods.

Such as explained Bors to different specialized media:

These deposits of objects can be considered as gifts to some of the existing deities at that time, although we still have to work a lot to determine it, although they hope to be able to give preliminary results in not too long since some of the pieces are in a really good state of preservation.

Regarding who deposited the objects there, there are several hypotheses and one of the most powerful is that it was an offering was made by someone of high rank in the social scale of that time, such as the chief of the warriors among others, although it is also possible that all these findings are an offering made by more people.

Although research on many of the pieces is ongoing, the most modern technologies are being used to determine as accurately as possible its age. At the moment, it has already been advanced that there will be new excavations for next year to try to find out if more information can be obtained from this site.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
