Meda - Longroiva

Chronology: Late Prehistory

The so-called “Longroiva Stele” was found in this site, located at the entrance of the village of Quintãs. It is a vast plain area, on the left bank of the Centieira creek. The soil is deep, cultivated with vineyards and olive trees, and no ceramic or lithic materials are to be found. However, two fragmented stelae (of which only one was decorated) have been recently found. Both have rectangular shape, with semicircular head, being similar to other Chalcolithic stelae known in the region but not to the Longroiva stele, which is of a different type and has a Bronze Age chronology.
