Project of landscape archaeology carried out by the University of Bologna in the northern Marche region, across the valleys of the Rivers Cesano, Nevola and Misa, mainly focused on the systematic employment of non-invasive techniques of investigation and mapping for evaluating the buried archaeological asset. Aimed at improving the general knowledge of the topography of proto-urban and urban settlements and deepening our overall understanding of the processes of early urbanization in this part of the Marche region. The research strategy adopted is based on the integrated use of a wide range of information sources, as well as a variety of non-destructive technologies and field techniques.
