Summary (English)

  • This excavation’s fate is clear. After the forced interruption in 2010 and 2012, the 2013 campaign suffered another stoppage at the end of the three-year concession. The excavations were intended to investigate the western and northern sectors of the summit area of Monte Terzio and extend in other directions in order to more accurately define the plan, dimensions and structures of larger stretches of the perimeter earthwork and ditch enclosure and of adjacent areas. In some sectors the excavations were to be deepened. However, once again lack of funding and availability of a four-wheel drive vehicle for getting up to the summit each day prevented the season from taking place.

    As in 2012, the only fieldwork that took place was some survey. The cataloguing, graphic and photographic documentation of the material from previous campaigns continued alongside new seminars and laboratory work. The latter involved the Department of European Prehistory at Perugia University and the Archaeological Superintendency.

    In other words, in place of the excavation assiduous attention was concentrated on the documentation, which confirmed the occupation phases, however seasonal, of the summit by substantial nucleuses of people for several generations, in a period mainly centred around the final phases of the Bronze Age.

    It has been decided not to request the renewal of the excavation permit in order to concentrate on the study and publication of the site and materials.
