Faculty and graduate students at Florida State are active in a wide variety of archaeological projects around the Mediterranean. Below are some of the projects which Florida State faculty and students work on.
- Cetamura del Chianti
Research by faculty and students of Florida State University has been conducted at Cetamura del Chianti since the opening of the site in 1973. Dr. Nancy T. de Grummond has led generations of FSU students as project director at Cetamura.
- Cosa Excavations
After a long hiatus, new excavations at the Roman colony of Cosa (Ansedonia) in central Italy began in June 2013 under the direction of Dr. Andrea U. De Giorgi (FSU) and of Dr. Russell T. Scott (Bryn Mawr College).
- Saronic Harbors Archaeological Research Project (SHARP)
SHARP is dedicated to explore human interaction with the coastscape of the Saronic Gulf [Greece] through time. Current work focuses on the newly-discovered Mycenaean port, named Kalamianos. Dr. Daniel Pullen co-directs this project with Dr. Tom Tartaron of the University of Pennsylvania.
- LASS is a multi-disciplinary landscape project (revolving methodologically around surface survey, geospatial analysis, and diachronic site-level documentation) whose primary aim is to assess how this episodic integration and disintegration drove sociocultural and socioeconomic change in Southwest Sardinia over the long-term. LASS is co- directed by Elizabeth Murphy (FSU, Classics), Thomas Leppard (FSU, Anthropology), and Andrea Roppa (Università degli Studi di Padova).
