CORIGLIA 2008 Season


Students from Saint Anselm College and the University of Oklahoma are digging Italy this May and June. Our excavation project is at Coriglia near Castel Viscardo, a town located at the southwest edge of Umbria approximately 8 miles northwest of Orvieto.  Preliminary inspection of the area indicated the remains of what seems to be a Roman villa.   Our first season (2006) uncovered many intriguing finds which posed more questions than answers.   The 2007 season expanded trenches unearthing roads, walls, rooms, fistulae and numerous artifacts.  But still we discovered nothing definitive about the use of the site.  Armed with a team of 32 students, we hope that by the end of this season we will unlock the mystery of the site.
