They are devoted to a settlement of considerable interest, which was inhabited between the 4th century BC and the 9th century AD. Excavations have brought to light the structure of a villa from the Republican era and the core of an imperial villa, overlaid with a religious building, as well as a necropolis dating to the 6th - 7th century AD. The evolution of the extensive archaeological site at Castro dei Volsci can be followed in the nearby municipal Museum, which presents a cross section of the site's various historical periods.Prehistoric stone items, votive materials from pre-Roman temples, elegant bronze jewellery, various objects with Etruscan influence, statues, vases, decorative pieces in multicoloured marble with geometric designs, and glass items from the Roman era are arranged in the display cases of the Museum, which also contains a reconstruction of an early medieval tomb from the necropolis, dated between the 4th and 7th centuries AD.
