    • Shortly after the creation of the Selva del Lamone Nature Reserve, following surveys and on the indication of the Farnese Civic Museum and the SAEM, it was decided to undertake a first intervention regarding the numerous illegal excavations present within ... Read More
    • A large scale illegal excavation, undertaken a few days prior to the start of the work programmed in Area 2000, a short distance away from the room paved in tufa blocks, rendered it necessary to carry out the time-consuming recovery of numerous pottery fra... Read More
    • In Area 0 the large quadrangular room (3), already interpreted as a textile workshop, was again investigated. Below the floor level was a thick layer of levelling filling the natural unevenness of the terrain. The discovery within this layer of a number of... Read More
    • Excavations continued in areas investigated in previous years. In Area 0 an extensive investigation was made of the large area situated south-west of the previously excavated rooms. The aim was to define the internal layout of the rooms in what had begun ... Read More
    • In Area 0 exploration continued of previously identified structures which had suggested the preservation of features of considerable interest. The north-east and south-east perimeter walls of the large room 8 were better defined. A very substantial collaps... Read More
    • The excavation in Area 0 continued with the investigation of several surface layers, situated directly below the humus and of the extensive collapse of stones which characterise all of the south-western part of the vast insula. In room 7 the removal of the... Read More
    • Inside the residential block (Area 0), research continued in two main areas: in the various rooms and in small trenches opened in order to define the limits and extension of the block itself. In room 7, identified as a kitchen, most of the collapsed layers... Read More

    • Within the residential quarter (Area 0) excavation of the vast central room (8) was completed. As in the part excavated in the previous year, below very substantial layers of collapse from the walls and the roof, was an occupation layer characterised by th... Read More
    • In Area 4000 (east gate) excavation of the baulks left inside the paved area of the gate was completed. This exposed a sort of housing in the paving running along the length of the north side of this space, probably relating to a stone or wooden fitting, s... Read More
    • In the area of the eastern gate (Area 4000) it was decided to shift attention to the zone downhill, where stretches of wall were visible between the gate and the site’s southern fortifications. A part of the structures can be interpreted as substructures c... Read More
    • It was decided to enlarge the excavation all around the previously dug cistern situated in the central area (Area 7000). In fact, the results from the previous year’s trench had revealed a deep layer formed by collapsed materials suggesting the existence o... Read More
    • Nell’area centrale dell’insediamento (Area 7000), dove negli anni passati è stata individuata una monumentale cisterna a pianta circolare di circa 4 m di diametro collocata all’interno di un cortile acciottolato, si è continuato nel progressivo allargament... Read More
