The aim of this dissertation is to investigate the Eneolithic and Early Bronze Age settlement in the area of Fucino, which hosted one of the largest lakes on the Italian peninsula until 1865.
The introduction summarizes briefly the history of the archaeological and geological research on the Fucino basin, which started in the late nineteenth century. The second chapter provides a geographical, environmental and paleoenvironmental background to the investigation. Finally, the last two chapters deal with the main dissertation topic: excavation sites and their materials are examined, together with their connections with surroundings areas and data on the ancient environment. The analysis is focused on two main issues: first, the relationship between the Fucino basin communities and the Tyrrhenian and Adriatic Eneolithic cultural developments; second, the Eneolithic-Bronze Age transition in the region.
