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.
