Eponymous site of a widespread Late Copper Age culture distributed over most of Rumania and dated to the 3rd millennium be. The preponderance of sites are small, short-lived settlements with an altitudinal range from the lowest Danube flood plain to high mountain plateaux. Seasonality and presumably pastoralism was important in Cojofeni economies, although agriculture and fishing is also evidenced. Most burial sites used inhumation rites, although cremation is found. Although poor in metal, Cojofeni sites have a rich pottery assemblage with Furstenstich and lentil-impressed decoration (Linsenkeramik).
