Podere Cannicci – Day 14, 2020

The second last day of the season at Podere Cannicci was full of surprises!

The removal of US 44 brought to the discovery of a new wall in the south-western part of the trench. Close to this wall, the remains of a dolium were collected; these bear marks on their surface, indicating the quantity of the liquid inside.

The wooden beam/architrave found completely carbonised close to the wall was fully documented. It appears to have some sort of relationship with the pillar at the center of the room that was exposed during the 2019 season.

We finally decided to have a pit test in the newly found drain, between walls 35 and 36. The sondage demonstrated that the archaeological sequence continues underneath.
