The project investigates the archaeological heritage of the Bronze, Iron, and Roman age necropolis at Giubiasco near Bellinzona, canton Ticino, Switzerland. The site was excavated very early in the 20th century and yielded an extremely rich archaeological material, mostly preserved at the Swiss National Museum in Zurich. Major objectives of the research are the scientific analysis of the material remains, the chronology and sociology of the burial site, and aspects of long term material conservation. The project is run as a cooperation between several universities and cultural heritage institutions.
