Abstract

The investigations of coastal landscape archaeology in the State natural reserve and marine protected area of Torre Guaceto (Br) started in 2007. in 2008, 2009 and 2011 archaeological excavations took place at the greater islet of Scogli di apani; these two islands have a total extension of about 1,5 ha and they probably are what today still remains of a larger peninsula slowly eroded and partially submerged by the rising of the sea level during the last millennia. in the Sector a (about 30m2) the investigation allowed to provide the evidence of a small part of a dwelling structure (hut 1) de- stroyed by fire; many fragments of daub, the remains of a mud-hearth plate and some handmade impasto containers (mainly closed shapes) were found still in situ. in the Sector B (about 95m2) it was possible to recognize the remains of a large dwelling construction (hut 2) destroyed by fire too; the structural evidences are several postholes, some remains of stonework bases, 5 different mud-hearth plates and a large quantity of daub fragments. moreover many artefacts were found a good state of preservation and in their functional situation on the floor of the hut: numerous handmade impasto vessels, some bone and antler tools, many stone artefacts and some ornaments. The analysis of the handmade local pottery allows to date these evidences to the late protoapennine or to the ancient apennine.
