In 2010 in Savelletri of Fasano (Brindisi) a preliminary archaeological excavation was conducted in a wide area destined for a parking lot along the coastal road to Monopoli in order to establish the presence of structures of archaeological interest in a high risk area in the immediate vicinity of the necropolis and the walls of the Roman town of Egnatia. The area selected for the project was investigated through the excavation of three parallel trenches and a more extensive trench in the eastern sector. The excavated surface led to discovery, for a distance of 75 meters, of a road oriented NS, parallel to the coastline and characterized by parallel grooves carved into the bedrock. Along the road were highlighted traces of a settlement characterized by the presence of structures (huts with postholes) and pits used as cisterns, channels, walls made of stones and limestone blocks, and concentrations of pottery fragments that document the use of the road between the third century B.C. and the first century A.D.
