VELDWERK OP HET STRAND TUSSEN NETTUNO EN TORRE ASTURA (MIDDEN-ITALIË)
During a 5-day archaeological campaign on the beach between Nettuno and Torre Astura, about 50-60 km south of Rome, the authors carried out a re-survey of protohistorical and Roman remains. Most of the sites visited had been mapped earlier by Piccarreta in the late 1970s. Tourism and erosion by the sea threaten and damage the sites. The aim of the fieldwork was to evaluate the remains for detailed future mapping and excavation. During the campaign various kilns were identified, of which two merit further exploration. Also an area measuring 300 by 400 m with remains of amphorae was investigated, possibly indicating amphora production at the site. Furthermore two protohistorical sites were mapped, one of which we hope to excavate in July 2001.
