Text from the curators:
The Moşna-Râpă / Tablă archeological point is located approximately 2.5 km SE of the urban boundary of Moşna village (Sibiu county) and is located on a small hill at the foot of which, in its southern part, runs a stream. The settlement has entered the scientific circuit – although no systematic or rescue archaeological excavations have been carried out here – since about four decades ago when, following viticultural works that severely affected the site and numerous ceramic fragments were found, now in the collections of the Mediaş Municipal Museum.
Archaeological research carried out between 2003 and 2006 by an archaeological team composed of representatives of the Brukenthal National Museum and the Archaeological Technique and Research Center (Canada) has uncovered impressive archaeological complexes, which illustrate rituals of consecration of the settlement dated in the Petrești culture (classic phase) and a wide inventory, including a spectacular gold tubular bead.
