The "in situ" construction protecting a princely tomb from the 4th - 3rd centuries BC shelters also local history elements, as well as windows with original archaeological finds dating to the Cucuteni culture period. Located in the north end of the village of Cucuteni, on Gosan Hill, in the location of "La pietrărie", the Daco-Getic tumular cemetery dates to the 4th century BC and has eight tumuli (burial mounds). Three of them were systematically excavated by archaeologists, the largest of them (mound no. 2, 3.30 m high and 35 m in diameter) being protected by a special construction raised in 1984, upon the centenary of the discovery of the Cucuteni culture. The mou...nd shelters a kind of stone precinct, round in shape, having an access path in the south-east part. Within the precinct we uncovered four cremation tombs, a main one for which the mound was raised and three secondary ones. The construction of the edifice (without supporting pillars) sheltering the mound makes it possible to view the cut tumulus fully.
