    Summary (English)

    • In June 2000 and July 2001 a geophysical survey was undertaken at Vagnari in the Regione of Puglia, southern Italy. The survey was carried out by the British School at Rome on behalf of Professor Alastair Small of Edinburgh University, aimed at locating and mapping any potential archaeological features below the present ground surface.

      Magnetometer survey was successful in locating and mapping the archaeological remains of the Roman settlement at Vagnari. A large building was identified comprising a number of rooms around a courtyard, and a series of structures associated with industrial activity were located along the northern edge of the gully, including a kiln and enclosure. A potential route between the settlement and the supposed line of the Via Appia to the north was also located.
