The Segni Project is pleased to announce that the second season of excavations will be held between the 22nd July and 17th August 2013.
Excavation will continue in Piazza Santa Maria, following the excellent results of the first season. Work will focus upon extending the current excavation eastwards across the square towards the cathedral, with the aim of revealing more of the complex sequence of Roman and medieval structures. Conservation work will also continue of the impressive polychrome mosaic discovered in the 2012 season.
Excavation will also take place at the site of Prato Felici, where clearance work in 2012 revealed the southern extent of a previously unknown Roman Republican cistern structure. At its southern extent, traces of Bronze Age levels were also revealed, which will be fully explored in 2013.
