The dolmen, or tomb with gallery, is a funeral monument from the 14th century BC made of large slabs of stone vertically placed on the earth and covered by a large slab. This structure was preceded by a gallery which was made of stone slabs also disposed one after the other on two parallel rows.
The legend tells that the dolmen of Corato was created by giants that wanted to show their might.
The dolmen is a collective cemetery and an expression of a clan or organized group that lived in our communities in the second half of the second millennium.
The construction of these enormous structures is a vast phenomena common in the Mediterranean and western Europe, although it manifests itself with cultural variants.
