Summary (English)

  • The open area excavation concentrated on the area around the Messapian road which was subsequently resurfaced and widened towards the south in the Roman period (overall width circa 4 m).

    North of the road, in a space delimited by a low dry-stone wall, a Messapian house of Hellenistic date was uncovered beside the tomb excavated in 2005. The house comprised two rooms, with footings of squared carparo blocks and the remains of stone walls.

    South of the road, structures belonging to a farm of Republican and Imperial date were identified. It was built of reused materials: squared carparo blocks re-cut for the footings, tomb slabs used for shelves and workbenches.
