The Archeology of the construction site examines the traces left by the builders during their work and the characteristics of the artefacts produced, focusing mainly on the walls, in order to understand the functioning of a construction site in action, in particular the technical-logistical organisation, the operations carried out for its plant, the planning of the construction process (supply chain), the provisional works, the machines, the roles and responsibilities of the people involved. Furthermore, it investigates the change in these aspects over the long term and tries to explain the reasons. The conference entitled "Archaeology of the construction site: themes and examples from Antiquity to the Middle Ages", held on 21 May 2021 on the Microsoft Teams platform, was organized by the Department of History Cultures Civilizations (DiSCi - University of Bologna), within the of the teaching and research activities promoted by the teaching of Archeologia dell’architettura (School of Specialization in Archaeological Heritage) and by the Laboratory of Archeologia dell’architettura. Each speaker dealt with this theme in relation to a specific territorial context and limited to a specific chronological period. Furthermore, Giovanna Bianchi and Andrea Augenti discussed the most important results, offering food for thought and stimulating further research.
