Caneva-Polcenico (PN) | Palu di Livenza - Santissima
The Palù di Livenza wetland lies at the foot of the Cansiglio plateau in a natural basin in the Pordenone area. The research directed by the Soprintendenza between 1981 and 1994 in Sectors 1 and 2 have highlighted archaeological materials and wooden features of a Neolithic pile-dwelling site. A vast part of the locality is protected and still unexplored, thus preserving important archaeological and palaeoenvironmental archives. The latest investigations, carried out at the Sector 3 since 2013, have revealed a well-preserved stratigraphic sequence with three main phases of pile-dwellings, attributed to diverse cultural groups of Recent and Late Neolithic.
