After many centuries in silence, important archaeological finds are beginning to emerge in the area of Taranto. The last: a 2,200-year-old tomb (2nd century BC) in the city of Apulia.

The grave is actually a chamber containing seven burials and it was discovered by the Superintendency of Archeology, Fine Arts and Landscape when carrying out a stratigraphic study in the area, requested by an energy company to create an underground network there.

These burials are very valuable to continue discovering the past of Taranto and all the objects found, among which are ceramics, votive offering objects and metal objects, are being restored in the laboratory of the Superintendency.

Taranto was one of the most flourishing cities of Magna Graecia (Magna Grecia), territory occupied by Greek settlers in the south of the Italian peninsula and Sicily.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
