In recent years, preliminary archaeological investigations required by the Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici dell’Etruria Meridionale in the municipalities of Capena, Morlupo and Fiano Romano (Rome) made it possible to discover thirteen lime-kilns dating from the imperial period to the Middle Ages. The paper describes the features and finds substantial differences, according to which the kilns can be traced roughly to two chronological - and cultural - horizons; it was observed that the lining of the walls of lime-kilns can occur in two different forms: a mixture of clay lining the walls or a masonry composed of stone’s fragments or reused bricks; the latter type of lining characterizes the kilns found inside or in the immediate vicinity of wrecked Roman buildings and that seems to be a distinguishing factor of the lime-kilns dating from the early medieval period.
