About ICA

Mission  
ICA's mission centers on the performance of innovative archaeological research and the thorough dissemination of the information produced by that research. Its interest in the rural world in antiquity is complemented by a strong belief in the importance of interdisciplinary, international, and collaborative investigations that bring together many different perspectives. ICA is also committed to the protection and presentation of the sites and landscapes that are the objects of its archaeological activity.

History
The Institute of Classical Archaeology was established as an Organized Research Unit of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Texas at Austin in 1978, in order to support projects begun in South Italy by Professor Joseph Coleman Carter in 1974.   Its focus was then and continues to be on the rural populations of the ancient Greek world.   In keeping with this interest, ICA expanded its activities in the early 1990s to include an ongoing project at the site of Chersonesos in Crimea, Ukraine.

Staff  
ICA's work over the years would not have been possible without the contributions of many dedicated, creative, and hard-working scholars and professionals, both in Austin and elsewhere.   Many, many skilled workers, volunteers, and graduate and undergraduate students from across the globe have also brought their passion and devotion to ICA's work over the past three decades. The following list only includes current, active ICA staff members, but we recognize and are grateful for the participation of all those who have worked with us in the past.
