The Gabii Project, Italy

Archaeological excavation and analysis at Gabii, east of Rome, Italy. (36 months)

The Gabii Project is the first stage of a decade-long excavation of a major Latin city near Rome. The work is conducted by the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology at the University of Michigan, under the auspices of the Italian Archaeological Service and in collaboration with the American Academy in Rome. The purpose is to investigate the early phases of Italian urbanism, currently only known through field survey and limited soundings. The Project addresses scholarly issues and holds considerable teaching, museum and outreach significance. Over fifty students each year will participate. As the only continuing large-scale North American urban excavation in Italy, Gabii could provide a dependable source of practical experience in Roman Archaeology--all periods and at all levels--and dissertation topics for American students and young scholars. Furthermore, long-term loans of archaeological finds could provide a laboratory of artifact and museographic research at the University of Michigan.
