Summary (English)

  • The excavation of the area identified in 2009 was completed confirming the Messapian date of the road bed. The loose foundations of a 3rd century B.C. Messapian house were also investigated.

    A preliminary investigation of the western part of the property identified Messapian structures (a second road associated with squared blocks probably belonging to a gate in the second Messapian curtain wall, and the foundations of one or more houses). These were partially covered and cut by small rural structures of Republican and Imperial Roman date relating to a villa rustica situated slightly to the south. The mosaic-paved atrium of the villa’s residential sector was identified.
