The articles are of archaeological, historical and museological interest and are mainly related to the region of Banat, although some deal with Romanian and universal history as well

In the scientific debates published to this date, there is a huge number of contributions addressing the archaeological spectrum of burial sites in the Transylvanian Basin and Muntenia from a general and comprehensive perspective, however, without taking into account regional or microregional conditions.
This omission is mainly caused by an anachronistic presumption of uniformity, perpetuated in the theoretical
approaches in archaeology, the roots of which can be traced back to the 18th–19th century dogmatics about the
nation as the primary human organizational form.
This article proposes to debate ‒ perhaps in a non-classic way ‒ the lack of burial sites in certain regions of the
Transylvanian Basin, Oltenia and Muntenia, and attributes this hiatus to a lesser extent to the current state of
research and to a greater extent to the differences in burial customs, respectively to the differently demographical
indexes between these regions.
