A recently excavated seventh- to sixth-century settlement in North Etruria near San Gimignano. The first phase of the site appears to have monumental characteristics (large walls and pilaster bases) with artisan activity (kiln) and possible votive deposits. The second phase consists of some walls badly damaged by agricultural activity. The site has produced substantial quantities of Etruscan pottery as well as some Greek imports.
