Abstract

This report contains the preliminary results of new research carried out at the Roman baths of Albintimilium excavated by Nino Lamboglia between the 1950s and the 1970s. The careful reanalysis of the original documentation and the finds from the excavation, together with the use of new procedures for exploring and classifying the surviving buildings, shed new light on the excavated structures, their interpretation and the chronology of the settlement. The detailed stratigraphic analysis of the walls of the baths complex, which had never previously been carried out, has enabled a preliminary definition of the entire complex into six phases, with regard to the building and the area in which it was built. The material and structures were initially divided into Reference Units, a methodology that had been little used for contexts prior to late antiquity/the medieval period and for ruined structures (Brogiolo, Cagnana 2012). This volume presents the results of this work which, in the light of recent research into the stone wall faces of the baths building, suggests a new interpretation for the baths complex of Albintimilium. It also illustrates the importance of applying this methodology to the complex reassessment of ancient structural contexts excavated in previous centuries.
