Area Archeologica di Serra di Vaglio

Archaeological area located on a natural acropolis at 1000 s.l.m. dominating the Basento valley. The site relates to an indigenous settlement frequented since the eighth century. B.C. Between the end of the 6th and the beginning of the 5th century BC. the organization of the urban space is articulated along a main road, which runs east-west, paved with wide flagstones and intersected by narrow perpendicular streets, overlooked by the houses. The contemporary necropolis has returned funerary equipment with Greek-type figured ceramics, gold and amber jewelry and Greek-type armor. These are the burials of those Basileis (kings), mentioned by ancient sources. From the first half of the 4th century, the layout of the town from the Lucanian age was established, frequented until the first twenty-five years of the 3rd century BC, characterized by monumental fortifications in square blocks and gates to the city. Inside the walls it is possible to visit living quarters that overlap those built in the 6th century BC. Worthy of note is an important experience in experimental archeology that has made it possible to completely reconstruct one of these buildings with ancient techniques.
