MONTE ROVELLO
   An important small settlement of five hectares in the Tolfa hills with almost continuous settlement from the Recent Bronze Age until the Hellenistic period. It was famous in the Recent Bronze Age for the discovery of a Mycenaean sherd (Myc IIIB/C) found within a monumental building. It is also the findspot of a significant hoard of bronze objects. There is also another distinct settlement location at Trincere nearby. A number of contemporary cemeteries at Campaccio, Forchetta di Palano, Poggio della Pozza, and Le Grotte probably relate to Monte Rovello. Related sites in the same area of the Tolfa hills include Allumiere, Caolino, Castellina di Marangone, Cibona, Coste del Marano, Croce di Bura, Elceto, Fontana del Papa-Tolficciola, Forchetta del Sasso, Forchetta di Palano, Monte Urbano, La Tolfaccia, Monte Sant’Angelo, and Tolfa.
   See also COPPER; BRONZE.
