The article reports on the archaeological data provided by the 2018 excavation at the urban site of Barikot, Swat (NW Pakistan). The campaign focused on the last phases of occupation of some residential and cultic areas located in the SW sector of the city, Units C and B. The excavation in Unit C reveals that the reconstruction activity following the seismic event occurred at the end of Period VII (mid-3rd century) caused a substantial contraction and redistribution of the living spaces. The investigation of the Kushano-Sasanian phases in some areas of the so-called Temples C and B, enriched our knowledge of these urban cultic areas, both in terms of architectural layout and ritual practices.
