The settlement organisation and institutional configuration of suburban and peripheral spaces of Aquileia in Roman times embody a developing field of research aimed to achieve a deeper understanding of the forms of the city’s overall spatial organisation. 'Beyond the city walls (BCW): the landscapes of Aquileia', a landscape archaeology project started in 2010, is trying to tackle theoretical and method¬ological challenges facing the investigation of Aquileia's fringes and define effective approaches to the study of this vital area. Geomatic and informatic applications combined with fieldwalking survey are leading to the identification of a number of as-yet unknown potential archaeological sites, while the analysis of artefacts from ploughsoil assemblages recovered at sites provides valuable insights into the definition of their nature, use and chronology of occupation. This paper explores the methodological framework implemented for the BCW project and delves into the outcomes achieved through ploughsoil artefact examination, and the way they underpin establishing how the organisation of the suburban space contributed to the function, character and forms of the city as a whole.
