Giubiasco, necropolis of Palasio
Giubiasco, in the Bellinzonese area, has returned a significant number of necropolises especially dating back to the Iron Age. This testifies the central role played by this region in the history of transalpine contacts. One of the latest archaeological researches has focused in the locality of Palasio, which in 2013 returned ca. thirty burials. The chronology of these findings sits between the beginning of the second Iron Age and the middle La Tène periods (4th-2nd century BCE).
