Montescuro

In the Montescuro district, about 2 km from Filaga, a hamlet of Prizzi, the Bovio Marconi reports that by digging out sand, in 1940, a "cave" tomb was found. The cell contained three depositions and a set dating back to the Middle Eneolithic: a globular olletta and a glass decorated with engravings, a bowl, two boar defenses with a hole for suspension. F ° 259 III SW, Filaga; UTM: UB6673.
