The territory of Ostuni was already frequented in the Middle Paleolithic (50,000-40,000 years ago) then there was the Neanderthal hunter. The hilly area, home to numerous caves, offered perfect natural shelters for primitive human communities.
The most striking testimony remains the discovery of the skeleton of the “woman of Ostuni”, of 28,000 years ago, a woman of about 20 years of age close to giving birth and of her child. The woman’s belonging to a group of hunters is documented by the remains of the trousseau, that is, flints and teeth of a primitive horse and ox.
The first city nucleus was founded by the Messapi, an ancient Illyrian or Anatolian population who settled in Salento in the 7th century BC; the Messapi were skilled builders of roads and cities and chose the location for the city on top of a hill with very steep walls (murex in Latin, from which the term *Murgia*, the are’s name, comes precisely).
Recent excavations near the Boarium forum (the area facing the medieval walls), have allowed the discovery of tombs of the 4th- 2ns century BC, which document the presence of an inhabited center, whose extension went from the sides of the hill to the sloping plain towards the sea.
In the 3rd century BC Salento was also conquered by the Romans and with it the city. The sources say very little about the period, probable traces remain in some farms, built on the foundations of ancient villas.
Little is also known about the etymology of the word Ostuni….
