The article is dedicated to the results of the archaeological excavations of 1988 of the Slavonic settlement of the VI-X c. that is situated in Moldova on the river Reut. An area of 1732 m2  of the settlement was investigated, where 9 semi pit-houses, 8 individual stoves, 16 household pits and a considerable number of real material: ceramics, items of iron,  bone and stone were studied. All the dwellings are analogous to those semi pit-houses with stoves investigated earlier on this monument and on other synchronous Slavonic settlements of Moldova. With all their constructive features they are referred to the Eastern-Slavonic group of antiquities. Similar stoves are also found on the early medieval Eastern Slavonic monuments both in Moldova and on the neighboring territories. Household pits represent an ordinary type of pits-cellars that are widely spread on the early medieval settlements. The ceramics is subdivided into hand-made one and into primitive potter’s one. In the cultural respect they are referred to the Prague-Korchac culture of the VI-VII centuries and to the culture of the Luca-Raikhovetsky type of the late VII – early X c. Due to the typological peculiarities and stratigraphical observations the ceramics of the Luca-Raikhovetsky type is subdivided into following phases:  beginning – end of the VII-VIII centuries; middle – end of the VIII century and late IX – beginning of the X century. This also allows to date the studied complexes on the settlement. The studied constructions and various real material allow to study more thoroughly different aspects of the material culture, production activity and social relations of the Eastern-Slavonic population of the region between the rivers Dniester and Prut in the early Middle Ages.
