The hut structures of the early 8th century B.C.
The remains of two stratified huts were discovered,

The plant of both structures is incomplete due to
the presence of the latest masonries.
The oldest hut has a base of stones as foundation
on which the walls of clay were built that remained

In these two structures many potherds, both relating to the household pottery, as pots, bowls and
cups for eating and drinking, and to the everyday
items as stoves, loom weights by weavers and weaving spools, were recovered.
For the first time it was possible to state with any
certainity that on the high ground of Rieti there was
a human stable settlement from a period preceding
the Roman town of Reate.
The hut settlement, presumably between the late 8th
and early 7th century. B.C., was gradually replaced

defined. This new arrangement of the area, not detected during the excavations so far nowhere and by
monumental ascertained evidence. The proof of the
materials, both relating to Orientalizing period and
to the 6th century. B.C., seems to underline the character of continuity of this settlement on the site of
Roman Rieti, of which up until now the existence
would only be imagined.

During the consolidation and redevelopment works involving seismic upgrading, undertaken by the province of Rieti, of the Police Station in Rieti, and formerly Palazzo Aluffi, the remains of a stratified huts settlement, dating to the
Iron Age, were found.
To date, these structures are the oldest discoveries made on
the high ground of Rieti in a layered dug up according to
modern archaeological research methodologies and documented in accordance with the standards ordinarily adopted
within this framework. They refer to the oldest phases of
occupation of Rieti currently known.
