Le attività di scavo e ricerca del Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici a Pompei ed Aquileia e gli studi paleobiologici sulla necropoli di piazza Corrubbio a Verona
This paper illustrates recent results of ongoing projects carried out by D. Cottica in collaboration with several researchers, scholars and institutions, as detailed in the article. At Pompeii three different activities will be illustrated: the study of the ceramics from Ca’ Foscari excavations in Regio V and VI, the ceramological and archaeometric analysis of the ceramics retrieved from 1980-81 stratigraphic excavations at the forum of Pompeii and the international project on “Exploitation of marine resources in the Vesuvian area”. In the second section of the article, we present and discuss interim results of excavations and interdisciplinary study carried out at Aquileia along the eastern bank of the Roman Natiso cum Turro. Finally, in the third part, we illustrate preliminary results of the study of past society at ancient Verona, using the case of the cemetery of Piazza Corrubbio as a platform for integrating archaeological data with a palaeobiological approach.
