2019 Field Campaign in Akragas, Sicily

IVGA cooperated with Classical Archaeology, Ausgburg University, for the Akragas Project in Sicily

 The close surroundings of an extra-urban sanctuary of the ancient Greek foundaction of Agrigento, already discussed in the colloquium lecture in January 2019 by Prof. Dr. Natascha Sojc (Classical Archaeology, University of Augsburg), was focus of gpor surveys this summer (26.8.-4.9.2019). The surveys were conducted by Prof. dr. Till Sonnemann together with two student assistants of the IVGA, Andreas Kreklau and Philipp Friedrich. On the weekend we visited another ancient Greek foundation, Selinunte, and discovered the temples of Agrigento by night.
