Castellaraccio di Monteverdi – Day 8 (June 3, 2022)

The last day of the week saw the documentation of the layer 37. Using the perfect morning light, we did a full photogrammetry of the area. This layer was recognized over the past few years as the last floor of the room before its abandonment and restituted a great amount of depurated and semi-depurated pottery, iron nails and some glass. We also uncovered a beautiful fireplace in the north-western corner of the site. We then started excavating it to reach the previous phase of occupation of the castle, which we uncovered last year in the rest of the room. Ryan is continuing his work in the new test pit in area 3000, while Adi and Mahlet helped us cleaning Area 1000.
