Castellaraccio di Monteverdi – Day 5

Fifth day of excavation at Castellaraccio. We were finally able to produce a first sketch of the plan of the castle, while the rest of the team was still working on the collapse of Area 1, exposing the central part of the wall 5, which can be later than the others. The construction technique is still rubble masonry, but there is a rich presence of reused bricks in the core of the wall, which may indicate a later phase of construction compared with the main curtain wall; moreover had been used a different kind of mortar, white in color.

In the evening the team from Podere Cannicci came to pay their first visit at the Castle.
