Neil Christie's review in: Medieval Archeology, volume 58 (2014), pp. 423-424
The volume, which inaugurates the series Archeologia Piemonte of the Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage of Piedmont, presents the history of the archaeological investigations, conducted for about two years inside the cathedral of Alba. The excavation, which took place within the "Cities and Cathedrals" project which involved seventeen Piedmontese episcopal complexes, represents an important moment for the knowledge of the stages of formation of the Christian community in the fifth century AD and the date of foundation of the first episcopal complex in the XNUMXth century. The volume opens with a historical introduction by Gisella Cantino Wataghin; the four sections follow, dedicated, in succession, to the analysis of the architectural parts of the cathedral, to the excavation and recovered materials, to the anthropological and paleopathological analysis of the tombs found inside the cathedral, to the diocesan museum and to the museumization of the area archaeological.
