In this work the author analyses the dolmenic structures of Bronze Age Puglia. The highest concentration of these sites belong to three areas located on the coastal strip of Bari, along the Ionian coast and in the hinterland of Taranto. Each structure has been fully described and inserted in a database in order to compare the evidences of the different areas. Thirteen dolmenic structures were compared to each other taking in count as main variables their geographic position, structural characteristics, number of burials and any eventual ritual indications, in order to understand their significance and use.
