0002 - Monte do Olival 1 ditched enclosure
Location: (Ferreira do Alentejo municipality, Beja district, Alentejo, South Portugal)
Chronology: Chalcolithic (Based on surface materials)
Bibliographic references: Umpublished (in print).
Just like I did with Xancra, this enclosure was detected in Google Earth by Manuela de Deus (Igespar).
It is a site with, at least, four enclosures and an entrance is visible, orientated to NE. The site will be integrated in the same project as Xancra and be submitted to geophysical prospection, hopefully next moths. It is very promising.
Topographically, is very similar to Xancra, being located in the middle of a slope orientated to NE.
