Abstract

Recent archaeological investigations conducted at Aquileia by Ca’ Foscari University of Venice at former Sandrigo estate, on the eastern bank of the Natiso cum Turro, brought into light two different systems of structures belonging to two different chronological phases. For their interpretation an interdisciplinary approach has been adopted and palynological analyses allowed to identify the presence of high concentrations of pollen of Cannabis sativa in connection with these structures. Consequently it is now possible to propose their interpretation as basins for the maceration for hemp, the first so far archaeologically attested in Aquileia and in the Roman world.
