Turdaș (Hungarian: Tordos) is a commune in Hunedoara County, Romania. It is composed of four villages: Pricaz (Perkász), Râpaș (Répás), Spini (Pád) and Turdaș.

This is the location of the Turdaş archaeological site. The archaeological site was a large Neolithic/Chalcolithic settlement along the course of the Mureş River. It was first researched by Zsófia Torma. The sub-culture Vinča-Turdaș (a late, regional variation of the Vinča culture) is named after this site. Some archaeological culture layers at this site are contemporary with the site at Tărtăria.
