Castellaraccio di Monteverdi – Day 4 (May 30, 2022)

Today, we finished the removal of the collapse in the northern part of the room, exposing the contexts belonging to the last phases of life of the building. Almost half hidden under the last centimeters of the collapse, we recovered a blade of a medieval knife with some fragments of pottery, including the rim of a testum – a dish used to cook a sort of flat bread.
We finished exposing a hard yellowish context, very disturbed in the centre by the roots of the stump that we removed the first day. After this, we finally removed the remains of the covering we put to preserve the stratigraphy during the winter; by doing so, we exposed the entire room again. We did some quick cleaning in preparation for tomorrow.
