Archaeological researches have been led since 2013 at Monte Santa Croce, a small settlement not so far from the early medieval city of Capua, on the Volturno turn. The community - referred to as a monasterium by the written sources - was settled at the end of the Xth century by the Lombard aristocracies of Caiatia and got developed in the Norman Age, as the little cenoby was donated to the Benedictine monastery of Saint Laurent ad Septimum: this large last monks' complex was situated in the town of Aversa (southern part of ager Campanus), the main site from where Normans programmed their expansion to most of Campania region since the end of XIth century. According to archaeological data, Monte Santa Croce's monasterium probably declined of the beginning of Modern Age.
