Abstract

Verucchio has attracted the attention of much research especially for its wealthy cemeteries, and the recovery of funerary assemblages in exceptional state of preservation. Since 2011, the Università di Pavia, in collaboration with local institutions, has launched a study and excavation project devoted to the investigation of the habitation area. Explorations underway in the settlement are revealing complex evidence, which can be traced back to the early Villanovan period, and relate to land reclamation, water management, and delimitation of the settlement, as well as traces of production activities and remains of the subsequent phases, during the Iron Age.
