AMP team presented in Veneto Region stand at "ExpoScuola" the App "APPasseggio on the ColliEuganei"

On Tuesday 13th of June took place in the University of Córdoba the workshop "The sustainability of agricultural systems and cultural landscapes", with the participation of researchers from the Universities of Padova, Granada, Córdoba and Palermo, the Autonomous University of Madrid and the CSIC. 

This silo had the peculiarity of being filled with a great amount of tiles placed vertically. As this unit was excavated, a large slab of slate appeared, which was finally interpreted as the closing of the silo. This top is made in one piece of slate. It has a measurement of 0.53 m. by 0.90 m.

The burial was not composed of a skeleton, but only buried the skull and jaw of an adult woman. It had a clear intentional disposition, as it was found at the midpoint of the grave, with 3 flat stone chocks, located at the back of the skull to maintain the position. The orientation was different from the rest, since it was facing south.

The photogrammetric record of the stratigraphic sequence allows us to recreate different illuminations that help to the analysis and the interpretation of the area. In this one, after removing the most recent level, we can observe marks of plow, the result of an agricultural practice abandoned in the last 50 years.

The common burial structure of the necropolis is a pit excavated in the rock, whose dimensions are adapted to the size of the person buried, with northeast-southwest orientation, and a cover of slate slabs. On this cover are placed various slabs with vertical layout. Exceptionally, a variant of this system has been documented in this burial, the pit of which is amortized to a storage silo. In this case, the pit consists of two elements: one part is excavated in the rock and the other is formed by the silo filling itself and slates arranged in the shape of a box.

With a few simple gestures you can walk in the Euganean Hills discovering the most significant and evocative views of this territory and the populations who lived and transformed it over time.
