Field Reports from the end of the 1998 Field Season

Week 5 Report 1998

Field Supervisor Justin Winkler in the eastward extension of Unit 6.

Generally, all evidence in the extension mentioned previously points to the Hellenistic occupation of Poggio Colla. Contextually, it offers little to elaborate on regarding the architecture of the rest of the trench. It is exceedingly important, although, with respect to the quality and quantity of the ceramic artifacts. These discoveries are critical when attempting to ascertain the impact of the domestic and political economies of the site during the late 4th to 3rd centuries B.C. These two variables will enable us to understand the implications behind the local and/or regional development of Poggio Colla during its post-Archaic resurgence. Thorough research and analysis of this prospect, however, await serious engagement.
