Longobard necropolis of Campochiaro

Two longobard necropolises, similar in period and funerary ritual, were found in Morrione and Vicenne along state road 17 crossing the municipal territory of Campochiaro; they are about one km from each other and located in the Bojano-Sepino plain right along the border of the Pescasseroli-Candela cattle track. These are among the most interesting burial sites found in Molise. In an area of many hectares, sites used as burial grounds and covering the period from the 7th century B.C. to the 8th century A.D. have been brought to light. The sites at Vicenne are particularly important; here the tombs of Bulgarian riders have been found - buried together with their horses, arms and varied tomb items.
