The Institute of Classical Archaeology (ICA) carries out multi-disciplinary archaeological research, conservation, and cultural resource management projects in the territory of ancient Greek colonies in southern Italy and on the Black Sea coast of Ukraine.  ICA was established as a research unit in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Texas, Austin, in 1974.  Over the past 30 years, with major support from public and private sources, ICA has developed long-term projects to explore the agricultural hinterlands of ancient Metapontum and Croton in Italy and the territory and urban area of ancient Chersonesos in Crimea, Ukraine. Principal collaborators include the Archaeological Superintendencies of Calabria and Basilicata and the National Preserve of Tauric Chersonesos at Sevastopol. ICA's publications and research have brought it international recognition as a leader in the study of rural populations in the Greek and Roman world.
