Geophysics at Bobbio

Teams from the Columbanus: Life and Legacy Project and the Department of Archaeology at the Università del Piemonte (Vercelli) combined in a geophysical survey at various locations in the town of Bobbio (May) where Columbanus founded what is arguably his most famous monastery and where he died in AD615.

Arising from the on-going collaboration and common research interests developed around the subject of Columbanus and his legacy, NUI Galway has entered into a formal Cooperation Agreement with Università del Piemonte (Vercelli).

The results of the survey will be posted shortly. The work would not be possible without the generous funding of the Mellon Foundation and the organisational assistance of the Moore Institute.
