Found in 1926, the treasure hoard in Voineşti drew the attention of many archaeologists and art historians. Since 1961, it was fully or partially published. Studies containing new chronological details, if only on some jewels from this hoard, have been published in recent years. The opinion that prevailed in the `60s connected the time when the treasure was buried with the great Tatar-Mongol invasion in 1240—1241, but according to recent studies a part of the jewels and dress items must have been buried in the late 13th or even at the beginning of the 14th century. The jewels and the dress items from the hoard have different origins and seem to be accumulated in the Lower Danube basin and ancient Russian region. The earliest items were dated by 11th—12th centuries while the latest could be dated at the end of the 13th or the beginning of the 14th century. The most plausible supposition is that the hoard in Voineşti must have been buried around the same time with the hoard in Oţeleni, probably as a result of the events in the Lower Danube region, during the conflicts between the Tatar communities led by Nogai and his followers and Toctai.


Keywords: the Eastern Carpathians region, the Golden Horde period, hoard, earrings, bracelets, onlays, silver, gold.
