Program Description:

The Alcamo Archaeological Project is a multidisciplinary archaeological research project investigating Iron Age to medieval (c. 9th c. BCE to 15th c. CE) occupation and land use at Monte Bonifato in western Sicily. This mountain, and its surrounding territory, were home to temporally and culturally diverse populations for more than two millennia.  This archaeological survey project explores the development and growth of the Iron Age and medieval settlements atop Monte Bonifato and the land surrounding it.  This project uses hands-on experiential learning methods, combining regional and site-specific surveys with laboratory analysis to understand Sicily’s ancient past and train future archaeologists.
