    Summary (English)

    • In the Val di Comino the Proto-historian team of the Università di Perugia has conducted various investigations. The findings attributable to the ancient Bronze age reveal an occupation of the territory which included agricultural-pastoral activities, as well as hunting and fishing. The site excavated in the area of S. Andrea reveals a full occupation between the first horizon of the early Bronze and middle Bronze ages. It was probably not a fixed settlement, tied as it was to the seasonal agricultural-pastoral activities. The area also shows evidence of cults and agrarian rituals connected to fertility, indicated by findings of carbonized cereals at the base of the archaeological stratum and by a conical terracotta fragment, belonging to a horn, attributed by scholars to an ithyphallic or bovine cult.
