The prehistory to come – Research perspectives in the valleys of Albenga.
With the excavations at Arma Veirana, in the municipality of Erli, and the discovery in 2017 of the burial Mesolithic of Little Snow has begun a new season of research in the territory Albenga. These excavations were followed by some archaeological prospecting in the Alpine area,
stratigraphic revisions and new dating at Arma dello Stefanin (Aquila d’Arroscia), as well as the study of materials excavated in the second half of the 20th century by Milly Leale Anfossi in Val Pennavaire and preserved at the archaeological museum in Albenga. During the month of June some exploratory soundings will also be carried out in the Pian dell’Arma (Caprauna), in order to identify ancient Paleolithic and Mesolithic hunter bivouacs. The new research activities are carried out by the University of Genoa in collaboration with the University of Montreal (Canada), as well as with the support of the Superintendency, the International Institute of Ligurian Studies and some municipalities in the area.
