At the end of the 6th century AD, the villa of Faragola (Ascoli Satriano, Northern Apulia) ceased to be a luxurious and aristocratic rural dwelling. However, the end of the villa was not the end of the site’s life. From the early 7th century AD, a new settlement grew in the same area, reusing the surviving roman walls, recycling disused materials but also developing a good level of material culture and crafting activities, beside agriculture and farming. That was not a marginal form of re-occupation of the previous building but the expression of a complex settlement, economic and social re-organization.
