Valentino archaeological site
Here the area of the Castellucciana necropolis was devastated by a late Roman hypogeum and, more recently, by two carriage roads, the Pozzallo-Sampieri railway and reclamation works. Of the necropolis, which, however, did not have to be very extensive, only three tombs remain, two of which have been left in an incoative state (t. 1 and t. 3); the t. 2, partially underground, consists of a rectangular pavilion, a sub-rectangular anteroom and an oven compartment. Traces of the settlement come from the plateau above, where they were recovered ceramic fragments e flint preserved in the Museum of Modica. From this site it was recently reported the origin of a bone to blood cells. (Text taken from the document "Census of Ancient Bronze Age sites in the Modica territory" by Vittorio G.
