About the Research Group

In the period 2010–2015 the chair group will build on their expertise in the archaeology of the protohistoric, colonial Greek and Roman societies of Italy in various interdisciplinary projects that combine landscape archaeological, architectural, social, economic, ecological and methodological aspects of the study of Italy’s past societies, thereby continuing GIA’s strong tradition in Mediterranean fieldwork and artefact studies in Italy.
