Description

In the beginning of the 20th century, an incredible discovery was made in the south of Italy: close to Bisceglie, there was found a stone tomb, that dates back many thousand years - the Dolmen di Chianca. Explore the archaeological find and learn everything about the history behind it.

A dolmen is a grave consisting of three or more vertical stones holding a big horizontal stone. Most of them go back to the early Neolithic period from 4000 to 3000 BC. They were usually covered with small stones or soil in order to form a barrow but due to the weather conditions they did not last long. The stone was the only thing that persisted over millenniums.

The Dolmen of Chianca has a height of 1,80 Meter and consists of a chamber and a long corridor. Many human remains have been brought up, approximately those of ten people. Also, a wide range of funeral objects was found, for example ceramic vases, necklace and pendants and fragments of obsidian and silica blades. In the center of the dolmen, archaeologists found the remains of a fireplace which was probably lit often times during various rituals.

Dolmen di Chianca, surrounded by olive trees, is unique. This UNESCO World Heritage Site deserves a visit.
