Summary (English)

  • Work at Incoronata di Metaponto has re-started, the main objective being to set up the research programme and excavation plan for next year. This will be based on a careful examination of the state of both the archaeology and terrain. To this end, the hill, its slopes and the surrounding area have been surveyed. A magnetometer survey has been carried out on the Greek settlement and an archaeological plan of the area has been made using GPS. This research aims to understand the spatial organization within the hilltop settlement, re-examine the function of the spaces and investigate the non-residential areas. A further objective is the construction of chronological grids for each phase of the settlement’s life.
