The first American excavations of the Arx (1948-1950) conducted by Frank Edward Brown eventually revealed the remains of three sanctuaries, including the monumental Capitolium temple of the colonial town. In addition to these shrines, Brown excavated a ritual pit that he identified as the mundus of the colony.
