Field excavation on the prehistory of the Erei (central Sicily): the 4th season of archaeological investigations at Case Bastione (Villarosa)

Case Bastione, located in the valley of the river Morello, is a large settlement dating from the  Final Neolithic (4th mill. BC) to the Bronze Age (2nd mill. BC). In previous seasons a production area dating back to the Final Copper Age (2700-2300 BC) has been explored. It has revealed the oldest metal smelting furnaces so far known in Sicily, along with some huts dating to the Early Bronze Age (2300-1600 BC), containing a rich collection of vases and tools.
