From several points of view, the study area does not constitute a unitary space. What gives it unity, however, are the communication and access possibilities, which are always important for human settlement. The Mures valley was the main communication route between Transylvania and the western (Pannonian) plain. The river valley provides a convenient passageway beyond the Western Carpathians through the Mures Defile, a series of short defiles and small basins with larger terraces.

Transylvania can be understood as a space enclosed by the mountains. This topographic characteristic has determined various interpretations of the advantages that the area has offered to human settlement throughout history.
