In Conza della Campania you can visit the archaeological site of the ancient town of Compsa.
Excavation works started in 1978 but were forcedly interrupted because of the earthquake of 1980.
When the works started again, archaeological teams discovered a lot of Roman archaeological findings among them an amphitheatre, a marble urn enriched with decorations of the 1st and 2nd century A.C., the Forum, some Sarcophagi and a necropolis.
Excavation works have brought to light also two Lombard weapons - a sword and a spear.
