The previous publications of the necropolis of Campovalano in the BAR series, started in 2003 and continued in 2010, concerned the sepultures dating to the period between X and V century B.C. The current volume represents the conclusive part, which investigates the funerary contexts dating between IV and II century B.C. for a total of about 300 burials. This third volume of Campovalano also includes the anthropological and paleopathological study of all the sepultures discovered in the necropolis. Together with the site of Fossa, this is the only archaeological excavation related to the Samnite Wars that has been published in the entire middle Adriatic area.
