About the necropolis of Pantalica that was added to Unesco's World Heritage List in 2005 - Location:Region of Sicily near Syracuse - The Necropolis of Pantalica contains over 5,000 tombs cut into the rock;
we know only the last used as a necropolis. how do we know when the site is started if everything has been destroyed by subsequent installations?
The site seems much, much older than it appears....
for more information
some of 5.000 caves excavated by early men. see here
