Poggio Civitate: 2014 Field Report

  • Anthony Tuck EMAIL logo
From the journal Etruscan Studies


The 2014 excavation season extended our investigation of the domestic spaces revealed in 2013. While this cluster of architecture did not extend west, excavation did reveal a large, open space with a well in its center. The well’s aperture was heavily impacted with architectural debris associated with Poggio Civitate’s Archaic phase of building, suggesting the well was in-filled at the same point in time as the site’s final destruction and abandonment.
