Description

The need to build a new aqueduct in western Vicenza, a territory heavily contaminated by PFAS, has made it possible to identify, thanks to preventive archeology activities, an important context of the Longobard age in Monticello di Fara, in the municipality of Sarego (VI). The excavations, directed by the Superintendency of Archaeology, fine arts and landscape of Verona, Rovigo and Vicenza between September and December 2020, brought to light a large cemetery connected to a building of Christian worship; among the numerous burials investigated, the so-called "knight's" tomb stands out, characterized by an extraordinary set of weapons. The materials, restored with the contribution of Veneto Acque, were studied and exhibited for the first time at the Zannato Museum of Montecchio Maggiore (VI) in May 2022. This first publication is dedicated to the excavation and the finds found, in which it is deliberately chosen to use a popular language, supported by the reconstructive drawings of the knight and his equipment, always made with the scientific rigor of the archaeological method.
