    The volume accompanies the exhibition held in Trieste from 8 March to 28 July 2002, curated by a major scientific committee made up of numerous superintendents of Italian Archaeological Heritage and illustrious directors of foreign ancient art museums. As regards numismatics, the contributions of Attilio Stazio, Nicola Parise, Salvatore Garraffo, Katia Mannino appear of great scientific interest. The text aims to make the public aware not only of objects of high artistic value, often never exhibited before, but above all to lead to the knowledge of the extraordinary production of the Greek artisans of southern Italy who worked bronze, silver and silver. gold from the 6th to the 3rd century BC The selection criterion of the works is based not only on their aesthetic beauty, but also and above all on their ability to demonstrate the great technical skill achieved in the workshops of the bronze workers, goldsmiths, toreuts and coin makers of those centuries . Great importance is also reserved for the knowledge of the production methods and tools used by the Greeks who landed on the coasts of our peninsula. The subtitle of the book deliberately wants to indicate that the finds come from Magna Graecia understood in its maximum geographical extension, as peninsular Italy including Campania, Puglia, Basilicata and Calabria. Exceptions are some objects from Greek Sicily, chosen because they are irreplaceable.

The studies that converge in it are conducted on different documentary materials - archaeological, philological-epigraphic, ecological-naturalistic, etc. - through equally different methodologies and analytical techniques, in view of the convergence of disciplines in a wider reciprocal interaction. The chronological and geographical location goes from prehistory to late antiquity and the Middle Ages, even if the prevailing interests are concentrated in the ages ranging from the near-eastern and European neolithization to the Greek and Roman world. The eleventh volume, relating to the years 2001-2003, includes essays divided into four themes that broaden the scientific interests to a broad geographical horizon, covering a chronological period from the prehistoric age to the Middle Ages.

    Siponto. Archeology of an abandoned city in the Middle Ages, edited by Caterina Laganara, Claudio Grenzi Editore, Foggia 2011, pp. 231, richly illustrated, 31 cm, br. and.

    The volume includes a contribution by Giuseppe Sarcinelli dedicated to coins. Other contributions are signed by: Gianluca Andreassi, Sabino Edoardo Andriani, Patrizia Albrizio, Gabriella Bozzi, Austacio Busto, Giovina Caldarola, Ida Maria Catalano, Maria Antonietta Catamo, Giuseppe Ceraudo, Marcello Ciminale, Pasquale Corsi, Ginevra d'Onofrio, Giuseppe Daurelio , Giuseppe De Benedetto, Antonella Di Marzo, Emanuela Elba, Giacomo Eramo, Giulia Finzi, Danilo Gallo, Alessandra Genga, Patrizia Gentile, Lorena C.

Recognize the modalities of the abandonment of ancient Siponto - already a Roman colony in the 2nd century BC, then an early bishop's seat that with alternating vicissitudes through a long history of settlement - and give a face to the city, of which today episodic material traces, albeit marked relevance, essentially reproduce the same landscape known to ancient travelers, is the intent of this study. Making use of the most up-to-date methods on the ground and in the laboratory, the archaeological investigation begins to define the layout of a suburban urban area, close to the northern limit of this important port center on the Adriatic that relives in the memory of today's town of Manfredonia. developed immediately further north, without apparent continuity with the site of the ancient ruins due to the recent formation of the interposed tourist village of Siponto. Walls, houses, religious and funerary spaces, streets with external circulation areas together with the multiple aspects of the lively urban socio-economic reality and the daily life of its inhabitants are returned by a work in progress, part of an integrated program between the Superintendence for Heritage Archaeologists of Puglia and the University of Bari. The results of the first five excavation campaigns, carried out in the form of the school-field starting from 2000, presented in this volume, the realization of which was possible thanks to the funding of several Bodies , are also available in the permanent exhibition set up in the National Museum of the Castle of Manfredonia, where in an unprecedented form past and present coexist in the material remains and in the scientific-technological experimentation that decodes even the most faint traces. A volume that introduces the reader to the intriguing world of circumstantial disciplines, of which archeology is a part, and which offers a valid tool for those who intend to approach it.
