Malignano archeological Area

The first evidence of settlements in this area date back to the last centuries of the iron age, during the period from the 8th century b.c. to the 7th century BC.
The necropolis of Malignano is totally discovered only in 1964 by the Etruscan Foundation, bringing to light Chamber tombs and well carved into the limestone, in which were found the most common kits of Volterra, other ceramics and some coins dated 3rd century BC and the 2nd century BC. The use of the cemetery began in the fifth century BC, referring to classical materials collected in 1983 during renovation works made by the archaeological Superintendence for Tuscany.
