Castellaraccio di Monteverdi – Day 10 (June 7, 2022)

New day at the castle. Today we documented with the total station all the new layers exposed in the northern side of the area. Michelle reviewed the stratigraphy with the rest of team and we did a photogrammetry of the area. After this, we started to excavate the dark context 55. This level is also rich in burnt seeds so we had to take samples and sieve the soil. We are now entering in an older phase of occupation of the castle and context 55 represents the final occupation of this previous period.

Ryan has almost completed the excavation of the topsoil, fully exposing what looks like the corner of a wall, most likely belonging also to an older phase of the castle. Outside this structure, on the east, a group of collapsed bricks, a rare construction material, so far, at the castle.
