Summary

Nowadays, due to climatic changes, high friability of the geological deposits, deforestations, agricultural work and ultimately to a bad management of land improvement works, a lot of Chalcolithic settlements are affected by intensive hidrogeomorphological processes. However, if there are not immediately taken a few antierosional measures, our future generations will not be able to study and understand the prehistorical people. Protecting and conserve the heritage is among one of our research direction, try to save what has remained by modern GIS techniques (3D terrestrial laser scanner, aerial photo, total station, GPS) and non-invasive methods (Ground Penetrating Radar, magnetometer, soil resistivity). A few case studies will help us understand better the danger of degradation of these sites, being among the well known Chalcolithic sites from eastern Romania (the place where cultural complex Cucuteni-Ariu’d-Tripillya was discovered).
