This article reports on recent fieldwork carried out in three campaigns between 2000 and 2002 by the Groningen Institute of Archaeology on the coast between present-day Nettuno and Torre Astura in South Lazio (Italy). The focus is on the excavation of a late Bronze Age site with evidence for salt production, the investigation of a ca. 120 m long section eroded by the sea that contains evidence for the production of amphorae in the Roman Republican period, and the excavation of a lime kiln of subrecent date.
