Season

    • The aim of the 1999 season was threefold: to complete work, begun in 1997, in an existing area (MP 6000); to open up a new area further to the east (MP 7000), attempting to establish the limits of the inhabited nucleus; and to continue post-excavation anal... Read More
    • This year work was continued on the trench MP 7000A, now renumbered MP 8000 and enlarged to the SE and SW. It soon became clear that MP 8000 was not a single building with rooms within, as had been supposed in 1999, but rather a number of phases involving ... Read More

    • Previous seasons work at this site had uncovered a large late second century B.C. terrace wall of substantial polygonal masonry, delimiting a broad terrace partly built up of architectonic debris consistent with a sanctuary of the late Hellenistic period. ... Read More
    • This year saw the completion of work on the terrace with the obtainment of a complete section right across the site, from natural to topsoil. The trench (MP 8700) linking up the existing trenches to provide the section was finished. We now understand the e... Read More

    • In 2005 the Sangro Valley Project continued work at Monte Pallano and Acquachiara. On Monte Pallano, further geophysical prospection and trial trenches to the north and east of the terrace precinct begun in 2004 were continued in 2005. Excavation on the hi... Read More
    • In 2006 the “Sangro Valley Project” continued investigations at Acquachiara on the slopes of Monte Pallano. The circular structure which emerged in 2004 was looked at in more detail although its function remains unknown. This tumulus with conical section (... Read More
    • Investigations of a series of archaic terraces begun in 2004 (ACQ 8000) were this year concluded. Work concentrated principally on the central terrace, for which two principal phases were established.

      Phase 1 (dated by C14 to the early sixth century) s

    • Excavation of a farm building (ACQ 10000) discovered in 2002, and excavated in 2006 and 2007 was completed. The building is now known to be c. 5 × 10 m; it had a tiled roof, but no internal walls. Built in the first half of the first century A.D., it was o... Read More
    • The Sangro Valley Project undertook a study season in July 2010 aimed specifically at processing the material and data from two sites at Acquachiara, excavated over several years between 2001 and 2009, with a view to publication. Substantial progress was m... Read More
