Castellaraccio di Monteverdi – Day 14 (June 13, 2022)

Today marked the beginning of the last week of excavation for Castellaraccio and Cannicci. After a deep cleaning for recording the situation after the removal of the dark context 55, we started to remove a series of layers representing a series of activities that happened after context 55 was formed.

We excavated the fireplace in the northwestern corner of the room. This layer looks more like a charred beam, but we will need further work. We excavated one of the yellowish-gray pits in the northern area of the room. We hoped to find a seed deposit, but the pit was almost empty. Ryan exposed a new layer under the brick collapse with large stones. We will need to understand whether it is another wall or another structural element.
