In order to learn more, we visited the History Museum of the "AI. I.Cuza" University in Iasi
We learned howarchaeologists work to reconstruct the past Now we know that in Moldavia, where the city of Iaşi is situated, people have lived since the Prehistoric period, meaning about 7000 years ago!

The Cucuteni culture is characterized by a high quality ceramic, painted in a rich and varied way. Ceramics of the Cucuteni culture are unique in Europe, with quite striking similarities between Cucuteni pottery and ceramics from Neolithic culture in China. Between these two cultures there is a very long distance, as the Chinese one appeared after about a millennium later than Cucuteni.
Cucuteni ceramics with different shapes:cups, bowls, trays, fruit bowls, decorated with spiral-meander, incised grooves or painted in three colors: white, red and black
Motive spiral - meaning life and the continuity of life after death
