American Excavations at Morgantina:

Contrada Agnese Project

Give for the Dig

     The ongoing success of our project rests on the generous support of individuals like you. Each charitable donation makes our fieldwork and research possible. Most importantly, your gift will help provide opportunities and training for a new generation of classical archaeologists!

     Since 2013, more than 100 students from over twenty US colleges and universities have participated on CAP excavations. We hope to double that number by 2020, while continuing to keep the excavation experience free of cost to students, asking only that they cover their airfare to and from Sicily. Learn more about the student experience at Morgantina by reading some student testimonials.
