Excavation in the Territory of Metaponto

To illuminate the life of the ancient (sixth century B.C.) Italian farmer—his dwellings, fields, and places of worship. Much is known about ancient cities and temple sites, but relatively little is known about the inhabitants, whose efforts largely supported the economy and way of life. Publications resulting from this project will be a monographic study of the farmsite chosen, a piece for Notizie degli Scavi, and special studies of unearthed ceramic materials.
