Excavating ancient Gabii in central Italy
Introduction
We are the Gabii Project, a group of archaeologists and scholars excavating the ancient Latin metropolis of Gabii in Central Italy. Beginning with geophysical surveys in 2007 and 2008, the Gabii Project is now in its fourth year of archaeological fieldwork at Gabii. We are happy to hear from you and look forward to telling you more about archaeology in Central Italy.


The Gabii Project was launched in 2007 with the objective of studying and excavating the ancient Latin city of Gabii, a city-state that was both a neighbor of, and a rival to, Rome in the first millennium BC.
Located in the region of Italy once known as Latium, the site of Gabii was occupied since at least the tenth century BC until its decline in the second and third centuries AD. Amazingly, in subsequent centuries the site of Gabii was never developed or even substantially occupied, nor has the urban area ever been the site of major, stratigraphic excavations. As such, the site provides a unique opportunity to study the development and structure of Archaic urban planning in Central Italy, both monumental and civic architecture, domestic space, and all other corollary studies. Since Gabii eventually became a part of the Roman Empire – first as a member of the Latin League and later as a town with municipal status - numerous important intersections exist between Gabii and Rome.  This awareness of the linkages between Gabii and Rome is but one motivation for further archaeological investigation of this urban center.

The project operates a volunteer field program during the summer season. It enters its fourth year in 2012.
