Abstract
The process of assimilating the grooved decoration is vaguer in the sub-Carpathian area and is more difficult to examine than in the southern Oltenia and Banat. The only areal where this process can be studied further more is the Râmnicu Vâlcea basin. Besides some discoveries with pottery grooved, similar with the Vârtop type, apparently isolated, to the beginning period of the First Iron Age was attributed a series of sites identified in the the piedmont hills and of the sub-Carpathian area, from which is distinguished the urn cremation necropolis from Râureni I. We might talk about the existence of some different elements that characterize the discoveries from the Danube’s meadow, as comparing with those from the south-Carpathian regions. The Early Hallstatt from Oltenia has a first stage characterized by the grooved ceramics; it might be dated, in the absolute chronology, roughly, in the 12th–11th centuries B.C., respectively Ha. A.

Keywords
The Early Hallstatt, pottery grooved, Oltenia, the sub-Carpathian area.
