L’Uomo di Altamura, Filitalia webinar
The Man of Altamura was discovered on October 3, 1993, in the Lamalunga Cave by Lorenzo Di Liso, Marco Milillo e Walter Scaramuzzi of the ‘Club Alpino Italiano’. Buried in the sands of time 250 thousand years, the Man of Altamura is the only entire human skeleton found from the Paleolithic era. The skeleton is an adult human specimen, trapped in the Lamalunga cave in Altamura, which has been incorporated into the stalactites and stalagmites that have grown around it and have kept it intact. What is the history of this skeleton? What is the legend of the Lamalunga Cave?
