added by archaeologs A multi-level settlement site of the Late Neolithic Cucuteni culture, located west of Ia§i, north Moldavia, Rumania. The main settlement level, of the Cucuteni A3 phase, has a radiocarbon date of c3130 be. The village of almost 70 houses lies on a promontory site, the neck of which is defended by a ditch and palisade. Rich polychrome painted ware is found in many houses; an important discovery is a group of large copper bossed pendants, with affinities in Denmark and Austria.
