During the month of May 2009, a flood of the river Bistrita, produced in the Farcasa Neamt town, would very likely to reveal a Neolithic workshop manufacturing of tablets inscribed with very similar famous tablets of Tartarus.
They were joined by other artifacts that were discovered by Prof. inimosul Dumitru Ionita history, in the section called Vadu Rau, the city left out above, since the 80s of last century, which was spoken.
The discovery is very important because, alas, it proves that the famous Tartaria plates, dated as being “younger” over a millennium than the Sumerian Djemdet Nasr and Uruk Kis, commonly considered the oldest form of writing the world is not an isolated case, incidentally, but an organized activity as possible, held by the inhabitants of those times of the present territory of our country.Unfortunately, like other such exceptional discoveries, even that did not receive needed attention from the Romanian specialists.
These incredible adventure “stones” inscribed in the ’80s began last century, when Professor Dumitru Ionita, during a recognition of land held in the city section called Vadu nemteana Farcasa Rau, has discovered a number of Neolithic objects, such as : fusaiole, weights for fishing nets or loom, polished stone axes, etc.. .
Artifact reminiscent of tartar
Among these objects, few have attracted particular attention. It’s clay tablets, some rectangular, oval or round, one of the girls who had various signs incised: diamond fringe, intersecting lines, which constitute a support for other smaller lines arranged in a row, etc. various hollow points. Over the years, erosion has continued right bank of Bistrita, have every opportunity that came to light dozens of such tablets, their number reaching 120, all carriers of protoliterate mean, as I think Professor Ionita.
“eSome of them are made of rectangular stone slabs, over which a thin layer of clay littr, which was incised with signs of the most varied. Among them was an amulet pendant, similar to that of tartar, which has two mounting holes, “said Professor Ionita us.
The flood this spring, as shown above, revealed at the same point, also dozens of incised tablets, which appeared as a novelty, “semisfere groups, which have their one on vault, two, three or four lines.
Different weight tablets, being between 100 and 500 g. From the observed might say that the “hearth” of the workshop was an impressive amount of material to be processed and that was probably incised. This made me think that we are dealing with a workshop that had been left in a hurry, for obscure reasons: either because of natural disasters or because migration of Neolithic tribes, “we said Dumitru Ionita.
Part of the Bistrita tablets are almost identical to those of He-to Tartaria believes that “some of these tablets are relatively similar to those found Nicholas rheologul Vlassa in 1961 to Tartaria, Alba, who belong to the Neolithic Vinca culture, dating, based on carbon 14, to be conducted between 6500-6000 BC Emit Vadu Rau assumption that there is definitely a workshop for manufacturing of these artifacts, which then spread in a vast geographic area, reaching as far west of Romania’s current or even to Easter Island. The dimensions of tablets ranges between 13.5 cm long, 7-8 cm in width respectively, “says Professor Professor Dumitru Ionita.
Prof. Dr. Vasile Boroneanţ: “It is very likely to have been a Bad Vadu deposit” Without being experts, we can realize that we are dealing with a discovery of a special importance. Therefore, we asked the opinions of a researcher who had the opportunity to see some pictures of these mysterious tablets. It is Prof. Basil Boroneanţ well known archaeologist, who, for many years, looked at the archaeological site and the Cladova Chitila where breakthroughs were made, proving the existence of some of those places of the oldest spiritual and material culture in Europe.
In connection with these tablets, he told us, “was in the age model. For similar reasons have been discovered in our space and the otter, and Chitila and elsewhere. They are similar to those of Mesopotamia. It is very possible that there Vadu worse, there was a deposit. But serious research should be made to issue a correct assumption. Such decorative elements come from the Paleolithic, where these elements as ways of communication used by insiders age. We find today, although their meaning may not be distinctly costumes, the stitches, the domestic household products, tools, etc on. They are specific only to the Carpatho-Danubian space.
Tartaria proves that writing has appeared in south-eastern Europe are not in Sumer
As shown Vadu Rau artifacts can be observed striking resemblance to Tartaria tablets. Their story last he awoke, in time, both the enthusiasm, but also more reluctant, so that, although unequivocal evidence attesting to their age, are still skeptics who do not want to accept reality.
In fact, today, very few Romanian specialists still dare to talk openly about this unique discovery. But I do foreign researchers, who may not no shame, no fear to say openly that the first human writing has appeared in south-eastern Europe and not in Mesopotamia, as was believed until now.
They say this in mind when both the Tartaria artifacts (you do not believe not a loss of objects or a trade happens or not Sumerians arrived in the area Tartaria natives, as May says sometimes!) and two other findings: that of Karanovo in south-eastern Bulgaria, where on a hill, a level corresponding to the third millennium BC Neolithic were found several clay seals, including one round with icons engraved in the way the Tartaria seeders, and that of Gracian, in north-western Bulgaria.
There, they discovered two small plates. On the bottom of them is shown a schematic representation of an anthropomorphic, and the second shows a very similar form of the writing on the seal of the Karanovo and one of the tablets from Tartarus.
British archaeologist Colin Renfrew, who performed all the digging in Bulgaria, Sitagroi, supports this hypothesis.
Then, the famous Italian archaeologist Professor Marco Merlin, director of the Prehistory Knowledge Project, a member of the World Rock Art Academy Italy, who, keen to “miracle” on Tartaria, searched and found bones found by Vlassa together with the three tablets.
After they have been analyzed and dated to the Department of Geology, University of Rome, Professor Merlin concluded: dating is very old, around 7,300 years!
And the bones belonged to a woman aged 50-55 years, which he assigns a religious role, because the bones were found among the 23 sacred objects, including a tissue anchor, some bracelets and some statues of idols.Located in 2004 in our country, the famous Italian archaeologist would declare a colleague: “The bones are very old as tablets. Now it is a certainty.Now is our turn to find that writing began in Europe two thousand years before Sumer. In Romania, we have a huge treasure, but it does not belong only to Romania, but all of Europe. “(Huelva I y II, por ejemplo)
Research artifacts, a liability for historians, not a waste of time
We presented these data to try to sensitize the Romanian research in the field, so that we can answer without fear of compromising us, to challenge it proposes to us a teacher Dumitru Ionita. Because discovery is undoubtedly a great challenge.
We are not able to give advice, but experts believe it is the duty to investigate not only these amazing artifacts, and other deposits that lie in museums for tens and tens of years without being plugged into one account. We believe this is a duty, not a waste of time because, ultimately, identity elements of our existence as a people find their European and also supporting evidence.We conclude by saying that the tablets from Bad Vadu We have to receive attention. As a matter of fact and other objects collected by the tireless effort and passion from Farcasa history professor who regularly surprises us with many outstanding discovery.
