The Marzamemi Maritime Heritage Project, led by Stanford's Justin Leidwanger, is a collaborative excavation, survey, and heritage management initiative focusing on the maritime landscape and seaborne communication off the southeast coast of Sicily (Italy). The concentration of accessible sites here and their location at the intersection of the eastern and western Mediterranean facilitates inquiry into long-term structures of regional and interregional maritime exchange from the early Roman era (3rd/2nd c. BC) through Late Antiquity (6th/7th c. AD).

Thanks to Laura McPhie, web developer & assistant trench supervisor, for creating a Facebook page for the project in time for the start of the 2016 field season.
