Trebula Balliensis is a novelty in italian archaeology. Buried by natural phenomena, it holds the "secrets" of the history of the Samnites and some aspects of their culture, up to now deemed as lost. The findings are very recent and date back to 2007. The site offers the ruins of the Roman baths and and the impressive walls (more than 2,5 Km) with a megalithic gate (more than 5m in height and 4.5m in width). Worth mentioning also the Heroon (grave and temple of the mithological founder) and the furnace for the production of the bucchero. The site can be freely accessed.

Trebula Balliensis is not ready for prime time yet. We were fortunate to see it in June 2012, in the company of a relative who was responsible for surveying the site. Other than us, the only people there were a couple of PhD candidates who were continuing to study the site. It's fascinating if you are into archaeology. The wall was built by the Samnites, a pre-Etruscan group, and the city was later turned into a Roman settlement complete with a thermal bath. No doubt there is a wealth of discovery waiting to be unearthed there; for now, it's very much a work in progress. You will not find the site in your guide books, nor will you find signage or any kind of amenity - but if you're in the area and have a robust spirit of adventure, it's amazing to see an important site while it is being excavated. If you decide to visit, dress appropriately - there are stinging nettles all around the site.
