Pirro Nord is one of oldest prehistoric sites in Europe and it attests the presence of our ancestors in Europe before 1.5 Million years ago. The site is localized in the municipality of Apricena (Foggia, Southern Italy) inside an active limestone quarry.

In Apricena a small museum about Federico II has been open in 2010. The museum has 4 main rooms that show mainly Medieval remains found in the Apricena municipality and since 2013 the idea of a specific room about the Pirro Nord site is borne.

Abstract

Pirro Nord is one of oldest prehistoric sites in Europe and it attests the presence of our ancestors in Europe before 1.5 Million years ago. The site is localized in the municipality of Apricena (Foggia, Southern Italy) inside an active limestone quarry. The site is well known since the '80 as a palaeontological site, but a systematic excavation has started in the last decades under the direction of the University of Ferrara for a month each year. In Apricena a small museum about Federico II has been open in 2010. The museum has 4 main rooms that show mainly Medieval remains found in the Apricena municipality and since 2013 the idea of a specific room about the Pirro Nord site is borne. Because of some administrative problems linked to the administration turnover, the project has been concretized just from 2016.
