Bodaiestii de Sus Site



Bodaiestii de Sus  Site Bodaiestii de Sus  Site

There is a road between Filiasi town and Melinesti village, connecting the Jiu River valley to the Amaradia River valley, crossing the hills between them. At the entrance to the small village of Bodaiestii de Sus is a huge wild area, a valley between two lines of hills, similar to the Radovan valley, where a preliminary search has already found a few artefacts from the stone and bronze age.

In this wild valley all the conditions for an archaeological site are met, including a forest on the hills above, a river in the middle of the valley, and a spring issuing from the hill. The artefacts are unusual, and a new and more thorough search must be made at this site.

Bodaiesti Tell



Bodaiesti Tell







This is a wonderful photograph of Adrian, taken by his son Alexandru at the end of a day of exploration of Bodaiesti Tell. It could only have been taken by an artist, and by someone who knows and loves his subject deeply.

Adrian works so hard for his country, and devotes so much time and effort to Romania's history and prehistory.

Someday Adrian will be recognised more universally.

Tell: Colină artificială formată de către ruinele unor așezări antice. [< fr. tell < cuv. arab].

Tell: Artificial hill formed by the ruins of ancient settlements.

Over a period of several days, passing just near a strange hill, near the main road between Filiasi and Melinesti, near Bodaiesti de Sus village, Adrian became curious about the area.

It was at the GPS point 44.576861°N, 23.851758°E, ALT = 228 m.

It seemed to Adrian to be a target for a real and important Bronze Age site, because it has three important facts to be considered:

1 - A huge hill, as Titanic hill is in the Radovan village area, and as Bad Valley is.

2 - A deep forest in the background of the site

3 - Deep valleys around the hill.



Bodaiesti Tell
Adrian and his son Alexandru, went down from the main road to the deep valley around the Tell, and although they walked the entire valley, no water source was found.

Thus the site cannot be an important one, because there is no water.

The search must be done again, because the deep valleys seem to be from ancient rivers in the area, and in any case, a good site-hunter must see the landscape with eyes that can see the terrain from a vantage point of two or three thousand years ago.
