added by archaeologs Fortified promontory site of the earlier Bronze Age Otomani culture, located near Marghi|a in northwest Rumania and dated to the mid-2nd millennium be. The principal find is a three-roomed ‘temple’ of MEGARON-type appearance, unique so far in Bronze Age Europe. In one of the rooms, fired clay altars were associated with clay fire-dogs and vase supports. Outside the temple was the inhumation burial of a child in a pit. Rich ritual finds, together with other unusual burials, typify other areas of the site.
