Excavations of T-25 and T-26 revealed the Southeast building, also known as the workshop, which provided much information on the nature of the period of orientalizing production at Poggio Civitate. In 1985, 1988-90, and 1994 seasons, T-27 was excavated to further define the nature of the Southeast building and to attempt to find a kiln. Although no kiln was located, an interesting rock pack, possibly a fossa, was discovered. (For further information concerning the rock pack and T-27 excavations, see AC III, JB II and TT V ).

In the 2001 season, trenches T28 North and T28 South will be placed in the area south of the workshop and east of T-27. Magnotometer surverys revealed a spike and a low point (80S 197E) in this area. T28 North is

(see back of book for profile B T28N's low)

placed around this low point while T28 South is directly on the spike recorded by the magnotometer survey. The goals for T-28N and T-28S are similar to those recorded for T-27.

  1. Recover artifacts associated with the workshop, particularly architectural terracottas which may have adorned the south flank of the building.
  2. Attempt to locate a kiln associated with the workshop.
  3. Define teh stratigraphy of the slope, specifically the ancient ground level and slope.
  4. Define and continue further exploration of the rock pack.

Excavation of T-28 North may provide information to help clarify the ancient utilization of the south slope.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
