A special day at the Medieval Bridge

On Saturday, the excavation team of Podere Cannicci moved towards the Ombrone river to carry out a digital survey of the remains of the Medieval bridge. This connected the coastal area of Maremma with Chiusi and Mount Amiata and it collapsed soon after to its destruction. The team was able to fully survey and map the walls of the bridge, and to understand several other features around.

A little bit of clearance from the vegetation allowed to map the structures with GPS and total station and Dr. Emanuele Mariotti was able to take some aerial pictures with his drone, showing the entireness of the reamins.

Quite a very productive day, with some very special surprises!
