During the archaeological researches conducted near Saharna and Saharna Noua villages a new fortified settlement was discovered – Saharna “La Şanț”. It is located eastward of the fortified settlement Saharna Mare, on the steep bank of a deep ravine. The site of ancient settlement is semi-oval shaped, 180×65 m in size.

The settlement was protected by the steep bank of the ravine on the north side and by a defense construction on the west, east and south sides. Five household pits containing various ceramic material were discovered following archeological researches conducted in 2006. Four spinning spindles, fragment of a stone grain grater and numerous fragments of ceramic vessels were discovered in the cultural layer of the settlement. The discovered inventory can be dated with the 6th-3rd c. BC.
