Abstract

Analysis of the waterlogged woods and of charred bota- nical matter — charcoal and seeds— from the archaeological site of Somma Vesuviana provides information about feeding resources and natural vegetation on the Vesuvius’ north slope in 472 AD. The authors conclude that the area was strongly anthropized but not degraded, with wild woodlands and cultivated stands; furthermore they found relevant data about Castanea sativa local cultivation on Somma Mountain.
