Abstract

The Holocene history of the Danube Delta has been studied using C analyses of faunal material. The principal phases of development include: (1) initiale Letea Caroarman spit, 11,7009800 yr B. P. in its central part, 88005500 yr B. P., in its southern part| (2) Sf. Gheorge I Delta, 89007200 yr B. P.| (3) Sulina Delta, 72002000 yr B. P., and (4) Sf. Gheorghe II DeltaChilia Delta, 2000 yr B. P. present. Other smaller-scale features have also been dated, including secondary deltas (Cosna and Sinoe Deltas) and littoral bars. Age determinations carried out on whole samples were erratic and it was found that indidual species had to be separated and dated. In all cases, the older dates were of transported material whereas the younger dates gave the true age of the formation.
