In this paper, the results of the latest three excavation campaigns at Benabbio Castle, a Medieval fortress (XII century) located within the Media Val di Lima Lucchese (Tuscany, Italy), will be briefly examined. The site, of great strategic importance, has two points of scientific interest: firstly, the great value of the archaeological and historical discoveries made there, both in terms of architectures and findings, and secondly, the important outcomes implied in the study of skeletons belonging to two different burial contexts, the first dating back to the Low Middle Ages (XII-XIV sec.), the second to a still largely unknown episode, the epidemic of cholera that struck all Europe in 1855.

Abstract

In this paper, the results of the latest three excavation campaigns at Benabbio Castle, a Medieval fortress (XII century) located within the Media Val di Lima Lucchese (Tuscany, Italy), will be briefly examined. The site, of great strategic importance, has two points of scientific interest: firstly, the great value of the archaeological and historical discoveries made there, both in terms of architectures and findings, and secondly, the important outcomes implied in the study of skeletons belonging to two different burial contexts, the first dating back to the Low Middle Ages (XII-XIV sec.), the second to a still largely unknown episode, the epidemic of cholera that struck all Europe in 1855.
