The Lucanian settlement of Caselle in Pittari represents one of the most interesting and amazing archaeological sites located in the Southern Italy.

With the aim to identify the urban plan of the site, an extensive geophysical campaign was carried out in the last two years. Results show how the integrated use of archaeological information and geophysical data allow to reconstruct the ancient urban plan of the site formed by orthogonal roads (plateiai and stenopoi) that neatly delimit the isolates (insulae).

Abstract

The Lucanian settlement of Caselle in Pittari represents one of the most interesting and amazing archaeological sites located in the Southern Italy. The excavations realized in the last three decades have confirmed the presence of an important settlement including houses, workshops, fortification walls. With the aim to identify the urban plan of the site, an extensive geophysical campaign was carried out in the last two years. Results show how the integrated use of archaeological information and geophysical data allow to reconstruct the ancient urban plan of the site formed by orthogonal roads (plateiai and stenopoi) that neatly delimit the isolates (insulae).
