Baia is a commune in Tulcea County, Romania.

Villages

The commune includes five villages:

  • Baia (Hamangia until 1929, Turkish: Hamamci)
  • Camena
  • Caugagia (Turkish: Kavgaci)
  • Ceamurlia de Sus (Yeni Kazak until ca. 1855)
  • Panduru (Potur until 1929)

History

In 1953, archaeological excavations on a site along the Lake Golovi?a, near Baia, led to the discovery of a new Middle Neolithic culture, named after the commune. Further research has shown that the culture, with Mediterranean origins, extended across Dobruja and North-Eastern Bulgaria. The culture's most notable artefact is an anthropomorphic statuette in terra cotta, known as The Thinker, which was discovered at Cernavod?.
