Kurzbeschreibung
aktuell nur in englischer Sprache verfügbar

The pile-dwelling settlement of Lugana Vecchiais situated on the eastern shore of the long, thin tongue of land that forms the Sirmione peninsula. The pile dwelling, known thanks to occasional finds during various dives in the nineteen-seventies,is thought to be situated about 100 metres from the shore and to measure 125 meters by 90 meters.The research made it possible to outline a settlement that probably had a central area (about 100 square meters) characterised by large piles, and another area, formed of smaller timber structures, perhaps supports for walkways linking the homes with the dry land.

Besonderheiten und Highlights

A group of objects, perhaps a deposit from a Middle Bronze Age foundry, was found in a specific area of the pile dwelling, beyond a series of piles with square holes and a heap of stones. Finds from the area include small copper ingots, rods, slag, waste and rejected pieces to be melted down, as well as awls and chisels used for finishing and decorating the final products.
