Podere Cannicci – Day 7, 2020

Another great day at Podere Cannicci for our archaeologists!

The removal of the collapse covering US 21 (the wall dividing the room with dolia from the recently newly exposed spaces of the complex) revealed a burnt context, red in color and with a high concentration of charcoals. Moreover, a small rectangular structure, made up of mud bricks , was discovered, most likely a furnace or a kiln. In this room, a handle of a situla was collected.

The excavation trench was extended both on the western and northern sides; from the latter, two bronze coins appeared from the soil. One is a Republican coin, while the second bears the image of an Antonine Emperor (most likely Antoninus Pius or Commodus).
