Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses a number of late antique well-hoards found in the vicinity of Modena, which the author investigated in an earlier work published in 1994. It re-considers the coherence of this group, the nature of the finds from each hoard, the identity of their possible owners and their dating. The author also questions his earlier supposition that the hoards were deposited as a result of generalised crisis, and an argument is presented that they reflect the rural material culture of a more continuous transitional period. The particular refuse-pit with which the well-hoards will be compared is layer 84 from the rural settlement of Casalecchio di Reno. The pit was located in a courtyard area, adjacent to a large Roman-era building which was still occupied in Late Antiquity.

Keywords: Casalecchio di Reno; Late Antiquity; Modena; refuse-pit; well-hoards
