Castellaraccio di Monteverdi – Day 13, 2021

Today, we decided to stop exposing and excavating the main collapse in the second room of the keep; at the same time, the new strategy focuses on the exposure and cleaning of the fortification circuit, so to better understand its development on the northern side and in its conjunction with the keep.

The excavations at the house made it clear that an earlier structure, the function of which is still unknown, was present and partially reused in the 13th century AD, when the final complex was built. Our attention focused also on the western side, where a small context related to the foundation of a wall showed the presence of interesting pieces of pottery; this will help understand its chronology once the material culture is studied.

The complete removal of context 37 showed also a series of new strata with an intensification of carbonized seeds.
