Castellaraccio di Monteverdi – Day 9 (June 6, 2022)

Today, in the extension of Area 3000, Ryan exposed a new collapse in the easternmost part of the trench. At the same time, he was able to identify the corner of the east-west wall which is delimiting the southern edge of the area.

In Area 2000 the rest of the team almost completed the removal of context 37, exposing the continuation of the black, organic context 55 and a series of new layers that will need identification. The team also found two interesting finds: the rim and handle of a Pisan amphora dating to the 13th century, and an iron arrowhead in the interface, recovered between 37 and 55, possibly of a similar chronology.
