A new season of archaeological excavations has been undertaken last summer, inside the castle of Rontana (Brisighella, Ra), by the Department of History, Cultures, Civilization(Disci) of Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna, thanks to a collaboration with Parco regionale della Vena del Gesso Romagnola, Comune di Brisighella and the support of Cassa di Risparmio di Ravenna Foundation. During these researches, houses, wooden defensive wall, a church and several burials have been discovered under a deep layer of destruction due to a military campaign conducted in AD 1591, by Pope’ army to defeat ‘latrones’, in other words bandits, settled inside the castle. The excavations were carried out for ten years and a new archaeological site is now open to the community, to preserve and study local and European heritage.

Abstract

A new season of archaeological excavations has been undertaken last summer, inside the castle of Rontana (Brisighella, Ra), by the Department of History, Cultures, Civilization(Disci) of Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna, thanks to a collaboration with Parco regionale della Vena del Gesso Romagnola, Comune di Brisighella and the support of Cassa di Risparmio di Ravenna Foundation. During these researches, houses, wooden defensive wall, a church and several burials have been discovered under a deep layer of destruction due to a military campaign conducted in AD 1591, by Pope’ army to defeat ‘latrones’, in other words bandits, settled inside the castle. The excavations were carried out for ten years and a new archaeological site is now open to the community, to preserve and study local and European heritage.
