In this dissertation the author illustrates the results of a study of the funerary evidence arising in the Sicilian eneolithic contexts of Piano Vento, Roccazzo and Uditore.
The archaeological features that have been analysed and compared include the typology of tombs, the position, sex and age of death of the individuals, the presence and nature of grave goods, and the use of red ochre.
The aim of the work is to discuss the socio-economic characterization of Sicilian society in the III millennium B.C. throughout the comparison of the evidence from the three sites.
