Summary (English)

  • This season, excavations on the site of Pollentia-Urbs Salvia continued in the area of the temple-cryptoporticus complex, the civic area of the forum (Trench 4) and in Trench 5, north of Trench 4.
    In the temple-cryptoporticus complex, excavation continued in rooms A5 and A6, south of the southern arm of the cryptoporticus (CSS, cryptoporticus road south).
    At least four phases were identified.
    Phase I: construction of the rooms in the Tiberian-Claudian period.
    Phase II: room A6 was divided into two areas.
    Phase III: dating to at least the late 2nd century A.D., creation of a single room.
    Phase IV: the last construction phase, post 3rd century A.D., characterised by a new division of the rooms.

    The work in the civic area of the forum of Urbs Salvia, aimed to continue the investigations in Sector 2N.

    The Republican phases were represented by two destruction layers and the remains of a cobblestone wall. This occupation phase was interrupted when the already known porticus duplex was built in the Augustan period. The destruction of the porticus was covered by a thin layer of soil mixed with baked earth, on which the walls associated with the subsequent urban reorganisation of the forum were built.

    Trench 5 was situated in the area where, in 2015 and 2016, geophysical surveys undertaken in collaboration with the University of Camerino, indicated anomalies suggesting the presence of walls that could be associated with a system of fortifications of pre-Augustan date.
    This season’s research brought to light the superficial structures of an imperial building that was probably a bath complex.
