Bisceglie: Dolmen Megalithic Tomb

6. Bisceglie: Dolmen Megalithic Tomb

The Dolmen consists of three or more upright stones supporting a large flat horizontal capstone (table), although there are also more complex variants. Most date from the early Neolithic period (4000 to 3000 BC). Dolmens were usually covered with earth or smaller stones to form a barrow, though in many cases that covering has weathered away, leaving only the stone "skeleton" of the burial mound intact. It was discovered on 6 August 1909 by Mosso and Samarelli, who were responsible for the first excavations. Gervasio continued his search throughout the course of 1910. The tomb belongs to the type with long corridor, and consists of a burial chamber and an access corridor. The chamber is 1.80 m in height and is made up of three large vertical slabs made of limestone over which rests a cover slab that measures 2.40 m x 3.80 m. The excavations  performed in the chamber and in the dromos have yielded many human remains that can be estimated to be those of about ten individuals and a wide range of funeral objects, kneaded ceramic vases, necklace beads, and pendants, a fusaiola (bored piece) and fragments of obsidian and silica blades, and a bronze falera (valour medal). The remains of a circular fireplace was found almost at the centre of the dromos, one that must have been lit many times for ritual purposes. The Dolmen della Chianca, surrounded by olive trees, is unique. and this Unesco world heritage site deserves a visit.

based on 5 reviews

We had a most interesting tour with Anna Lisa. She has a wealth of knowledge about Trani and Puglia. She looked after us very well and was completely dedicated to us throughout the tour. I would have said she was excellent. I have given the overall tour a Good grade based on it predominantly spent looking at buildings from the outside, I would have enjoyed seeing some from the inside.

The castle was massive and quite interesting when we learned about all the symbolism in decoration and such. The guide was well-informed and when we got to the town of Trani, he made sure that we found a great place to eat lunch and knew where to meet our driver before leaving our presence.

Experience to be recommended to all those who want to fully appreciate the visit of the city Isabella who is the guide who accompanied us was not only prepared and professional but also very willing to meet our needs with the handicapped Thanks and good job Corrado and Cecilia
