Castellaraccio di Monteverdi – Day 14, 2021

The excavations along the northern side of the settlement and the keep revealed the continuous presence of the fortification wall that encloses the hilltop. The wall is characterized by medium to large stones, with a large foundation of at least 1.20m and it is preserved for some rows.

Particular attention is now needed in the house. Several new context were identified underneath 37, all pointing to an early medieval phase of the settlement. We spent the entire day cleaning carefully these strata to better understand their stratigraphical relationships while continuing to sieve all the soil for carbonized seeds.
