Dolmen Frisari
Bisceglie (BA)
Object Type: Dolmen
Staus: Present
Latitude: 41.18027
Longitude: 16.50961
Description: The Dolmen Frisari, not far from the Dolmen Chianca – only about 1.2 Km from it – takes its name from the owner of the plot of land where it stands. It is in contrada Lama d’Aglio, near the Masseria Frisari, close to the areas of Molfetta and Ruvo di Puglia. What is left of the megalith, resting on an outcrop of rock, is placed at the centre of a little specchia (small mound of stones), surrounded by a stone enclosure surmounted by a semi-open covering made of aluminium and plastic. There is a gate on the East side of the enclosure. Inside there are brambles and natural vegetation.  Behind the enclosure there is an olive grove with other arboreal species. The megalith is destroyed; we only have traces of what were supposed to be the lateral and bottom slabs of the dolmen. Since the beginning it didn’t have a capstone and it was limited by three large slabs hardly rising from the ground and an East facing opening. The dolmen is of the gallery grave kind; it was made of a cell and a dromos of which we can still see faint traces. 
Condition: Bad
Dimension: Dolmen a galleria: lunghezza cella non rilevabile; larghezza cella m 1,87/2,00; Ortostato Nord: Altezza m 0.70/0.49; Lunghezza m 3.94; Spessore m 0.42. Ortostato Ovest: Altezza m 0.75; Lunghezza m 1.70; Spessore m 0.20. Ortostato Sud: Altezza m 0.87; Lunghezza m 2.20; Spessore m 0.32.

Historical Notes: The dolmen was discovered in 1909 by the archaeologist Michele Gervasio. At the moment of its discovery it was almost destroyed by human intervention and the passing of time. Fragments of a human femur and a molar were found inside the cell. Judging by the size of the slabs Gervasio was able to state that it was the largest of all dolmens in Apulia. In 1990 Apulia Archaeological Superintendence started a new excavation campaign and a plan to recover the area where the monument stood.
