      • A geophysical survey was carried out near Cottanello in Lazio from the 10th-14th March 2008. The survey was carried out in the vicinity of the church of Santa Maria dei Casali in Collelungo following the discovery of a fragment of a statue in the area. The work was carried out at the request of Sindaco Roberto Angeletti of the Comune di Cottanello in association with the Soprintendenza Archeologica per Lazio (Dott.ssa Giovanna Alvino), and the landowner. The survey was undertaken by a joint team from the Archaeological Prospection Services of Southampton (APSS) and the British School at Rome. Overall, the survey results do not confirm the hypothesis that there were Roman structures associated with the fragment of statuary found. The dearth of evidence from this local area for structural Roman remains would seem to confirm our findings. It remains perplexing, however, as to where the statue fragment originated.
