At Ferento (Vt), during the excavations brought on in September–October 2005, in the area occupied by the domus dated in the first Imperial age (Saggio III), the excavation of the levels immediately previous the construction of the domus discovered a presumed ritual deposition. This was located inside a fossa (US 3258), located under the atrium and under a probable living-room (Room 11). The present work analyzes the materials of the deposition, both as parts of a piaculum for the obliteration of the precedent area, occupied by metallurgic workshops, and as parts of a propitiation probable ritual for the edification of the new domus. Furthermore it examines the pottery, the other materials and the animal bones contained inside the fossa 3258, as well as the stratigraphic data, in order to study the relationships between the deposition, the metallurgic activities and the other finds of the same phase.
