Those of the traditional aristocratic class are flanked by burials of many lower-ranking, free men or freed slaves. Used between the third century and the first century BC, the necropolis was associated to a mining settlement in the nearby travertine quarries in Santa Sabina.
The urns, some of which are exhibited in the municipal Antiquarium of Corciano, are generally smooth; only in some cases do they have sculpted decorations enriched by lively polychrome decoration. The lids are often engraved with the name of the deceased.
The necropolis-museum is part of a wider nature-archaeological route that also includes the necropolis of Fosso Rigo, used by craftsmen engaged in stone working.
The archaeological area is temporarily closed to the public.
