This second stage of a landscape archaeology project in the Southern French Alps was designed to assess the nature and depth of the archaeological remains of a major site Roman site called Rama. The first stage, in 2005, comprised a geophysical survey thus allowing us to locate the site and make a decision where to place our trial trench.
The 2006 fieldwork assessed the relationship of the site with the Durance River and the Byasse torrent and evidence for ancient flooding on the site. Below is an image of the initial opening up of the trial trench - view looking north up the Durance Valley Posted by Picasa
