Summary (English)

  • Since the 20th century ‘80s the Area Scheibler, located in the Western outskirts of Pisa, has been the place of findings and rescue excavations. Such discoveries testify the long-lasting history of this sector of the ancient suburb from the Iron Age to the Early Middle Age, with a consistent Roman phase.

    Core reading performed and geoelectrical investigation outlined that the area was crossed by a large fluvial channel, the disappeared Auser river. Investigated areas are located to the East (Area 4) and the West (Area 5) of the water course, offering a wide picture of the ancient landscape.

    From our investigation a complex stratigraphic sequence emerged: it was possible to recognise a fluvial landscape consisting of riverbank protection structures, piers, navalia, and the probable remains of a via helciaria. Such evidence is significantly related to the close site of the Roman shipwrecks of Pisa San Rossore, dating from the second century BC. to the 5th century AD.
