Abstract:

Preliminary considerations about one funerary precinct from a cremation Roman necropolis from the site Tăul Hop-Găuri (Roşia Montană, Alba County) ln 2002 was investigated, in the framework of the „Alburnus Maior National Research Program”, a rectangular funerary precinct with two functioning phases; its dimensions are 5.40 x 5.00 x 4.80 x 4.64 m. (the first phase), and 8.16 x 7.92 x 7.20 x 6.40 m. (the second phase). The funerary precinct is part of the Roman cremation necropolis from Tăul Găuri-Hop site. Ins ide the funerary structure, four cremation graves were identified and researched, all of them belonging to the general type of graves in this necropolis. Also have been identified four pits which indicate human interventions on the four graves inside the precinct. The funerary inventory is characteristic for the necropolises at Alburnus Maior: pottery and metal objects. The entire complex was dated to the 211d century A.O.
