The first archaeological testimonies regarding the population of Danube Delta date from the Bronze Age and are referring to the funerary hills from Murighiol and Chilia Veche -"Ciorticut" point (Little devil). For the end of the first iron age ( VI-V century B.C) there are proves attesting that the banks of Caraorman and Letea were inhabited (archaeological researches made in "Beresche" and "Somova"), presence that continues also in the second period of the Iron Age. Surface researches done in Caraorman area prove the existence of a Greek transit point which existed in V-III B.C. Apollonius of Rhodos, who lived in the III century B.C., in his epic poem "Argonauticele" makes interesting referees to a triangle isle, situated between the Danube's arms and called after the abundance of marine pines as Peuce Island. The same information is transmitted also by Pseudo-Scymos in "Periegesis" (III century B.C.). This mentions the multitude of domestic birds which are populating the island inhabited by Thracians and Bastarnians arrived here from other places.
