A new archaeological campaign at Vetricella


A new archaeological campaign is scheduled to begin also this year at the site of Vetricella (Scarlino, GR), funded by the European ERC nEU-Med project and sponsored by the Municipality of Scarlino (Fig1).

The excavation activities will be conducted by the nEU-Med Team in collaboration with some students of the Department of History and Cultural Heritage (University of Siena) and will focus on in-depth interventions of two distinct portions of sector 3.

The aim of the investigation is to gather more data on the first phases of frequentation (8th-9th centuries) and to better characterize the production structures already identified in the past years (Fig.2).



Among the objectives of the excavation is the possible continuation, in the newly opened areas of investigation, of the burial ground wich extends at the est of the central building, between the internal and the intermediate ditch.
