The Acropolis (part 1) fasc. 2. Excavations in Area B, 1957–1960 By Eric Berggren & Kristina Berggren, with appendices by Hans Helbaek & Claudio Sorrentino Introduction The excavations published in this volume were carried out during four successive campaigns in the autumn of the years 1957–1960, each campaign lasting c. one month. The author directed the excavations of 1957 and 1958, while detailed examinations of the area in the following years were directed respectively by Dr B.E. Thomasson and Dr B. Olinder, the trench masters, who kindly entrusted us with the publication of their results. Area B is situated on the Acropolis of S. Giovenale between the western façade of the medieval castle and the moat further west, which runs transversely N–S, at a distance of c. 50 m from the castle. During the last week of the 1957 season, an exploratory trench was opened with the purpose of finding a starting-point for the work of the next campaign (Tr. AP 57:1). One of the…

Luni sul Mignone 2:1

Distributed by Astrom Editions. Luni sul Mignone 2:1. The Iron Age settlement on the Acropolis By Torgun Wieselgren Luni sul Mignone, the small hill which will be remembered for its important remains from the Bronze Age and for the Monumental Iron Age building, has also brought to light less important remains from the latter period, which will be dealt with in the present report. It was during the third Luni campaign, led by Dr Carl Erik Östenberg on behalf of the Swedish Institute in Rome, that I was asked to undertake an excavation on the NE side of the Luni plateau. In the hope of finding remains of habitation we started where there still seemed to be enough earth to produce a stratification, since higher up where the earth-layer was only 20-15 cm deep, no traces had been found. A trial trench revealed that the place had been inhabited during the Iron Age. In the following excavation, which lasted a month, remains of three huts from this epoch came to light.
