Abstract

From the methodological point of view, the studying of the main characteristics of the researches must include the critical evaluation of the bibliographical sources and also the information offered by the archaeological information that we have.
Most of the information comes from the central publications, such are: “Dacia”, “Studii şi Cercetări de Istorie Veche şi Arheologie” (SCIV, SCIVA), “Materiale şi cercetari Arheologice”, “Thraco-Dacica” etc. The specialized regional publications, and we are referring here especially to “Oltenia. Studii şi cercetări”, “Arhivele Olteniei” or the local ones, such are “Drobeta”, “Buridava”, “Litua”, are on the second place as regarding the share. In the in the third category had been included works with monographical character (Vl. Dumitrescu, Necropola de incineraţie din epoca bronzului de la Cârna, M. Gumă, Civilizaţia primei epoci a fierului în sud–vestul României, M. Şandor Chicideanu, Cultura Zuto-Brdo Gârla Mare.Contribuţii la cunoaşterea epocii bronzului la Dunărea mijlocie şi inferioară, G.
