Stratigraphic sequence of a burial in a silo

You are here

The common burial structure of the necropolis is a pit excavated in the rock, whose dimensions are adapted to the size of the person buried, with northeast-southwest orientation, and a cover of slate slabs. On this cover are placed various slabs with vertical layout. Exceptionally, a variant of this system has been documented in this burial, the pit of which is amortized to a storage silo. In this case, the pit consists of two elements: one part is excavated in the rock and the other is formed by the silo filling itself and slates arranged in the shape of a box.
