2-First results: Monte Li Santi in the Archaic Age

Between the 6th and 5th centuries B.C. the inhabited area of Monte Li Santi appears to be organized like a “quarter” of a (heavily) populated and spread out city. The recent research of 2021 and 2022 uncovered numerous structures in blocks of precisely cut tuff rock, some of which are quite massive. Their function, which is still to be totally understood, might have been to create a flat terrace, making it possible to build on the steep slopes of the mountain or perhaps for fortification.

Next to these were found elements that indicate the presence of structures with wooden pillars. Signs of roads were found within the inhabited area and water installations such as canals, wells. and cisterns. All of this testifies the noteworthy urban and monumental development of the city of Monti Li Santi.
