Summary (English)

  • In May 2004, a geophysical survey was undertaken at the site of the Roman villa of Bruttii Praesentes, Lazio by the Archaeological Prospection Services of Southampton and The British School at Rome. The work was carried out on behalf of Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali and Soprintendenza per i Beni archeologici del Lazio.

    Overall, the geophysical survey has begun to expose the extent and layout of the Roman villa at Monte Calvo. The excellent results indicate that the use of magnetometry was very successful in locating buried archaeological features and were complimented well by the resistivity survey.
    The geophysical survey has demonstrated that the Roman remains are substantial and that the villa of Bruttii Praesentes may be considered to be part of a much larger and extensive complex whose importance will have been enhanced by its proximity to the via Salaria.
