Civitate B15ABC

The rest of the stones were lifted, and the trench taken down 0.70m to galestra or bedrock.  About 5.0m from the eastern end of the trench for 1.50m across (to the south), below the stones and above the galestra, was dark brown soil


with carbon deposits.  Found: one box of sherds; small piece of bronze (B15A); small, badly worn, piece of horserace frieze with the head of one of the riders and a steed preserved (2.50m from the east end, 1.50m from the north wall, and 0.50m depth - Find # 3); and small, badly worn piece of terracotta, possibly a fragment of frieze (B15B).

The area immediately to the north of Civitate B15ABC was tested in 3 places for "pacheto" contained Etruscan " dump."  They were taken down 0.40m to bedrock or galestra.

Civitate B15D

A trench, 2.0 X 5.0m, was

laid out on a N-S axis, perpendicular and adjacent to B15ABC.  The topsoil was removed.
