APRÈS LE DÉLUGE : ÉVOLUTION GÉOMORPHOLOGIQUE DU DELTA DU DANUBE APRÈS LA RECONNEXION MER NOIRE - MÉDITERRANÉE ET SES IMPLICATIONS SUR LE PEUPLEMENT ÉNÉOLITHIQUE / CHALCOLITHIQUE

Abstract : In this work, we document the evolution of the upper Danube delta (i.e. blocked delta) using archaeological, geomorphological and geoarchaeological approaches, after the discovery, in the 90's, of the oldest human settlement (Eneolithic/Chalcolithic) close to Mila 23 district. In-site and out-site fieldwork allows us to refine the Danube delta early evolution from 5,600 to 4,000 cal. yr BC. During this period, it functions like a fresh bayhead delta, flowing into a huge lagoon isolated from the open sea by the Letea-Caraorman spit. Then, lagoon water level rose rapidly due to an eustatic rise, and possibly from an unusual highstand of sealevel resulting from wet conditions. The settlement was then partially flooded and abandoned around 4,450 cal. yr BC.
