Considerații privind poziția cronologică și culturală a etapei timpurii a culturii Vinča în Transilvania


Authors: Dragoș Diaconescu, Cosmin Ioan Suciu

Keywords: Vinča culture, correspondence analysis, pottery style, Transylvanian Middle Neolithic, Bayesian approach.

Abstract:

Applying the correspondence analysis method on the morphological characteristics of the early Vinča culture pottery from the Miercurea Sibiului-Petriș site and using the obtained results as prior-estimates for the Bayesian approach shows that the time span of the Vinča layer, labelled as no. II from this site corresponds only to Vinča B phase, contrary to the prior assertions in this regard which saw this layer connected especially to the phase A of the Vinča culture. Enlarging the territory, consequently making the comparison to the eponymous site of the Vinča culture from Belo Brdo and other Vinča sites such as Alba Iulia and Tărtăria allows the conclusion that in Transylvania exists also a Vinča A horizon which totally corresponds to the same phase from the Middle Danube region. The Vinča B stage from Transylvania, defined especially on the basis of the materials from Miercurea Sibiului is rather different than the one from the Middle Danube region, reopening the discussions about a Transylvanian aspect of the Vinča culture.
