Abstract

The Summerschool at Téboursouk was focused on verification of databases, drawings maps and photographic documentation of settlements and finds discovered and collected in the years 1994-2008, such as: -faunal rests excavated in the Byzantine farm of Ain Wassel, containing among the others 2 skulls of dromedaries; -5unpublished milestones, comparised with the already published 57 items once standing along the 17 miles of the via a Karthagine Thevestem which passed through the surveyed area of Map 33. The chronology of the construction could be accurately established between 121-123 by epigraphic evidence of Emperor Hadrian; the chronology of repairs by epigraphic evidence of Caracalla, Maximinus e Gordian; the inscription concerning road repairs continue till Valentinianus I, the last great Western Emperor. But also after Valentinianus the road must have been continuously repaired, seeing that our survey certificated an economic boom and major expansion of production in Vandal and Byzantine times. -drawings and data processing of hand and donkey mills (consisting in meta and catillus); 60 % has been imported from Italian volcanoes; 40 % is made from local stone, such as nummulite. We discovered the quarry zone of nummulite on Djebel Gorra, where an unfinished catillus was left. A typical African artifact is the monolithic flour catcher with a round hole in the center for the meta. In Tunisia we found 4 limestone items, possibly used for compacting olives.
