Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 45 D3 Monte Serico

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Monte Serico. According to Vinson, survey evidence shows that Monte Serico has a long history of human occupation. A Norman castle (tenth century?) now occupies the summit of the hill but archaeological data show that the naturally terraced slopes were inhabited during multiple phases in antiquity. The hill has a commanding view of the Basentello valley and lies near important routes of transhumance. Local pottery and burials of the mid-first millennium BC. A Roman villa was identified on the north slope, but Bronze Age and pre-Roman materials were identified on the same site.
