The highest density of Geto-Dacian sites are from north Muntenia through the Carpathians into Transylvania. The Geto-Dacians, or Thraco-Getians, were influenced by the Celts and Scythians. This culture belongs to the later Iron Age from 4th century BC until the conquest by Rome in AD 106 and is a local version of La Tène.
During this period the Dacian kings reigned from fortifications and sanctuaries in the Orastie Mountains. This period culminated in the defeat of Decebal by the Romans, however this Roman success was not easy, thus implying the strength of the Dacian state.
