Method used

The historical archaeology research programme used for the castle of Montaccianico avails of the latest techniques and started in 2007 with a digital scanning campaign of the land of the castle area (DTM) - performed jointly with the ITABC institute of the CNR in Montelibretti - while in 2008 it concentrated on targeted investigations and stratigraphic excavations over an extensive area.






The excavations of the Montaccianico site have been conducted using the methods typical of 'surface' archaeology on a territorial scale; (such as those used on the sites of Scarperia since 2007 and on Ascianello, Sant’Agata and others since 2008/2009). The investigation methods, updated to avail of the latest experience acquired in the sector, have retained their innovative nature, on occasion adopting the experimental solutions developed by the research campaign which the Department of Medieval




Archaeology of Florence University has been conducting - as a “Strategic University Project” on forms of settlement dating to feudal times in sample areas with varied connotations both in Tuscany and in the Mediterranean.





One of the fields of experimentation, currently being developed with the collaboration of the CNRS Institute of Marseilles in the person of Dr. Pierre Drap- relates to the documentation and management of data, aimed at inter-relating a three-dimensional photogrammetric-based surveying system and a database to enable all the information collected during the course of the archaeological investigation to be handled.
