Filitosa is a small village in the southwest of Corsica and belongs to the municipality of Sollacaro. The site of the same name was discovered in 1946 by the landowner Charles-Antoine Cesari and excavated by the French archaeologist Roger Grosjean. Grosjean uncovered an unusual concentration of unique megalithic buildings which allow a reconstruction of the prehistoric development of Corsica from the 7th to 2nd millennium BC. Particularly impressive are a circular megalithic cult site and anthropomorphically designed menhirs from the late Neolithic/early Bronze Age period.
