About the locality:
Bulgarians settle here in 1806–1814 and 1828–1834 (Roman, L. 1984: 142). The 1838 registry of the population records the presence of 69 “Serbian” households (Velichi, C. N. 1965: 114). The Bulgarian settlers are known to have come from western Bulgarian territories (Романски, С. 1914: 24). At the end of the nineteenth century the population consisted of 215 families (986 persons), mostly Bulgarian, who were living in relative isolation from their Romanian neighbours (Georgescu, P. 1897: 128–129; Lahovari, G. I., C. I. Bratianu, G. Tocilescu 1898-1902 4: 165). G. Weigand visited the village in 1898 and later included it in his atlas as a locality with Bulgarian population (Weigand, G. 1900: 118; Weigand, G. 1909: Map 67). Fieldwork in 1972 showed the presence of over 400 families, almost exclusively Bulgarian. Младенов, М. 1994 contains the dialect texts from Licuriciu that present traditional wedding customs. See Vlădescu, M., C. Vulpe 1999: 104–121 regarding the bioanthropological features of the population.
