Via Milano

Roman rural building

Site n. 34 - Angera Open Air Museum

3rd-6th century AD

Excavations conducted between 1981 and 1984 revealed that the area has been inhabited since at least the 1st century AD and brought to light the remains of a rural building dating to the 3rd century AD. 
The construction comprised a residential area next to a productive area with a courtyard. The building was rebuilt and enlarged in the 4th century and remained in use until at least the 6th century. The objects discovered, including two coin hoards, are kept in the Archaeological Museum, 2 Via Marconi, Angera.
The area is protected and cannot be built on; it is now covered by a car park.
