Fossa Necropolis

The best preserved and most monumental Italic necropolis in Abruzzi

The circular tumuli-shaped monuments of the most ancient period are similar to the ones found in the Marches, with big earth tumuli and stones. They are characterized by the rows of standing stones surrounding them, along the axis of the tomb, in a decreasing order. The most recent graves (6th - 1st century BC) are pit graves with no monument, with one only example of chamber and dromos grave dating back to the Hellenistic period.
