Romania, a legendary country

Romania, a legendary country

Historic sources trace the origins of European civilization in the arch of Carpathian Mountains and in the lower Danube River basin to the Black Sea area.

“Romania is the hearth of what we called Old Europe, a cultural entity between the years 6500-3500 BC, based on a matriarchal society, theocratic, peaceful, loving and creative art that preceded the patriarchal Indo-European societies fighters from the bronze and iron ages”, said Marija Gimbutas.

the significant Neolithic era civilization maturing in the lower Danube basin. Marija Gimbutas excavations and interpretations show, at the dawn of civilization, a society stretched across Europe from the Danube river to the North Sea. Relevant to Romania in this telling of ancient origins is the birth of Turdaș-Vinča culture, Hamangia and Cucuteni cultures from which flows spiritual symbolism that survives to this day in the traditions, rituals  and handmade crafts of peasant from Romania. Also the written Tartaria tablets set are associated with the Turdaş-Vinča culture. There have been radiocarbon analysis on bones found together with Tărtăria tablets in the pit ritual. However, indirect radiocarbon dating on the Tărtăria finds  the date of the tablets pushed much further back, to as long ago as 5500 BC, the time of the early of the Sumerian civilization in Mesopotamia. If the symbols are indeed a form of writing, then writing in the Danubian culture would far predate the earliest Sumerian cuneiform script .They would thus be the world’s earliest known form of writing or the first one ever in the history of human being . Writing in Europe’s oldest archeological was attested in 1961 in Transylvania, in the village of Tartaria on the river Mures, in Alba County, by Professor Nicholas Vlassa, of the University of Cluj. Apart from Romania, Tărtăria tablets dated 5500 BC, they went around the Anglo-Saxon world (Colin Renfrew, Marija Gimbutas) and created debate around the world. Although its people knew to write 7,000 years ago, this essential detail, after more than 40 years, is not known yet to Romanian public and does not appear in the history books.

Besides  TARTARIA  tablets,in  2009 it was  found  also  in the other  side of  ROMANIA, Moldova  area ,  BISTRITA   river’s Valley  another  TABLET ,similar  to TARTARIA’s  writing ,after  a  storm  and  floating  in  FARCASA village ,NEAMT  county .

Harald Haarmann, specialist in cultural history, archeomitology, history of writing, the evolution of language and the history of religions, author of 40 books translated into various foreign languages, editor and co-editor of 20 anthologies, makes a statement of great importance to us, the result of his research. He says that the oldest writing in the world is the Tărtăria – Romania and the Danube civilization is the first great civilization in history, thousands of years older than the Sumerian (still considered the cradle of civilization). The result of his research is presented in a documentary film called The Danube Civilization .

A famous Italian archaeologist Marco Merlini says that writing was born in Romania,  over 7,000 years ago .
The researcher based his  conclusion on 14 radiocarbon testing of bone found fragmmente with Tărtăria tablets in clay pots ritual.
After the results of the research dating bones, Marco Merlini said about this;
  – ” Bones, like tablets, are very old. Now is a certainty. Now it is our turn to prove 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 throughout Europe. “
Marco Merlini said that dating Tărtăria tablets, was established about 7,300 years, long before the ancient Sumerians be .
Japanese Minoru Nambara after a visit in Maramures, said:

“Marmureş is a primordial village. You do not know precisely where it comes from and it gives you an ultimately overwhelming feeling. Maybe all the port of wooden cliques of human flesh. It is a complex reality that converges here the feeling you are in the Universal  primitive village. The peasants of Maramures do not come from nowhere. You have the feeling that you came directly from heaven in Maramures. In other countries you feel and know that people have come from somewhere, here you do not have this feeling. In Maramures the man is primordial in his princely nobility, not primitive, but  the beauty of high civilization.”

 The Peruvian  archaeologist,  Daniel Ruzo,  considered  that  the  Sphinx of Bucegi  represents the oldest civilization that ever existed .
–  ” I looked at the mountains of the five continents  but we found unique monuments in the Carpathian proving that in these places there was a great civilization, representing the center of the oldest civilizations known today “.
According to ancient historians, Herodotus and Strabo, in the Carpathian arch was Kogaion Dacian sacred mountain, where the cult of the nation hearth is immortal.
 Dr. Ioan Olaru is the author of specialized studies on energies ” Kogaion s ” from Romania and  he  believes  that  there are more Kogaion s, the main three being: the Bucegi`s, including Omu Peak, in Apuseni  Area – Gaina  Mountain   and the  Ceahlau (Rarau) Mountain .

– The snake is present as a leitmotiv in Geto-Dacian Thracian art .
– You have over 6,000 years of gold  history. It’s  your own  history and who doesn’t  want , never  appreciate it as a true value  ” .
– If you enter the treasure chamber of the National History Museum in Bucharest, we can read what gold meant along your millennial history.
– You are the only country in Europe which has it’s own history written in her own gold .
–  Here, you do not find bought or obtained gold by conquest, as in the other museums around the world. Here we speak exclusively of native gold. Returning to what bracelets mean for your history, they are the proof that the Dacians were processing their own gold and also prove that Dacians were  having so much gold.
–  Laboratory tests, that were carried out, can not be challenged by anyone and they prove that gold bears the imprint of the Apuseni Mountains .
– Dacian period meant more gold, coveted throughout the ancient world. The Romans knew very well the existence of this immense wealth and their wars aimed, primarily, to enrich. The conquest of Dacia, the Romans were enriched consistent with both the public and private gold from the royal treasury .
– Then these bracelets demonstrates undoubtedly the creative potential of Dacian craftsmen. It demonstrates that these superlative auriferous Dacia genuine artists were processing the gold with a native lightness and dexterity, like children playing with plasticine or carved wood. Dacia had a solid experience in gold processing, an inherited tradition, we could say.
– These bracelets have an uniqueness and value that enables them to be called masterpieces. You, Romanian  people, can flaunt your origins and consider yourselves at least the equal of other nations that have roots in old Europe.
– You are definitely the followers of Dacians. Roman conquest could not change the structure of  the people until their departure, nor afterwards. The Romanian people, who of course suffered other influences, is radically different from the Italian one. It is more hospitable, more jovial, more communicative. Romanians connection with nature is much deeper than other European people . And this is the most important legacy kept by the Dacians. They  were one with nature. Nature was their life, and their life was nature.
– Stylized snakes go back to the gold bracelets, I don’t know if you’ve ever seen a snake skeleton, with its extremely resilient vertebrae. This skeleton is found exactly in the styling palm leaf ornamental motif that continues top of each bracelet. Only an extremely strong connection between man and nature could manage to lead such a remarkable achievement. So, you, Romanian people, can flaunt your origin.
