The greatest density of Latene sites are in the south of Muntenia with a low level through Oltenia, south Transylvania and across the Carpathians into Moldavia. It is not clear if these sites are La Tene, or just of the La Tene period.

The La Tène site has given its name to the European Iron Age which followed the Hallstatt period from the 5th century B.C. until the Celts were subdued by the Roman conquest. The La Tène culture may be termed "Celtic". After the 279 BC Celtic attacks in Greece many Celts settled in Bulgaria, Albania and Rumania.
