The American Excavations at Morgantina

Ten years after the close of the Second World War, excavations began at Morgantina in central Sicily under the auspices of Princeton University. American excavations at Morgantina continue with the contributions of many institutions and individuals. This site is intended to provide information about the site, our program of fieldwork and research, and developments on the site and our ongoing publication projects.

Excavation and research are conducted in cooperation with the Parco Archeologico Regionale di Morgantina, directed by Dott. Laura Maniscalco, and the Soprintendenza ai Beni Culturali e Ambientali di Enna.

Co-Directors of the American  project are Malcolm Bell III (Professor Emeritus, University of Virginia) and Carla M. Antonaccio (Professor of Classical Studies, Duke University). Project architect is Erik E. Thorkildsen (Michael Dennis Associates, Boston).

We gratefully acknowledge the support of Duke University, University of Virginia, Princeton University, and funding from the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, the Gerda Henkel Stiftung and the Loeb Classical Library Foundation for the South Baths project.
