The Roman Municipium of Urvinum Hortense. Preliminary data and reflections on local pottery

Niccolò Cecconi; Benedetta Sciaramenti

After introducing the history of the Umbrian Municipium Urvinum Hortense, and briefly examining the archaeological evidence and the site's topography, this contribution presents the results of an investigation concerning two aspects of craft production in the ancient Roman city. The first concerns the exploitation of raw materials, in particular the rock vein and clay of the hill where the city was erected. The second regards the formal aspects and the specific ways in which locally produced ceramic artefacts were used, all discovered during the excavations conducted by the University of Perugia between 2017 and 2019.
