Show sight on map

Ontelfi is a Bronze Age and Iron Age prehistoric settlement at the western end of Onoka. Unlike most Talai people in Menoki, at present, except for three Talai people, many building structures cannot be seen on the surface. The reason is that in the early 20th century, most of the buildings that stood out from the land were destroyed to turn archaeological sites into farmland. OT, etc., the sediments have not been completely destroyed: the excavation in Amih area in 2005 shows that there are still a large number of archaeological relics underground, which date from Taraotik to Oka and the Middle Ages of Islam. Or it can be discarded, but older remains can be found. l What we can see today is a group of buildings and spaces built for development needs, and all the daily activities of population groups closely connected with livestock and agricultural management. According to Elgu News, it should be one of the largest villages in the area near Itadela Port. When pointing out the concrete fact that it has no bezel, although its existence cannot be ruled out in view of the archaeological stratigraphic forces in the fields where it was formed and the damage suffered by the village over time.
