With the 2016 season the archaeological project at Interamna Lirenas has entered its seventh year of fieldwork. Building on an integrated array of research activities carried out across town and countryside, our team has been gathering a rich and varied array of evidence attesting to the liveliness of this Roman town from its foundation (312 bc) until the late Imperial period (Bellini et al., 2012; Bellini et al., 2013; Bellini, Launaro and Millett, 2014; Bellini et al., 2014; Ballantyne et al., 2015; Ballantyne et al., 2016). In 2016 we concentrated on two main activities: the excavation of the theatre and the full coverage ground-penetrating radar (GPR) survey of the urban area, the latter being paired with systematic sample surface collections and test-pitting of the plough-soil.
