Description

In 2014, Andrews University began excavating San Miceli in Sicily in order to offer its students the opportunity to excavate in a site of a different period, Early Christianity. The site had been explored in the late 1800’s. However, many questions were left unanswered and the dating of the finds was questionable due to lack of correct stratigraphy. Thus, the Andrews team has excavated in San Miceli for the last 4 years. This work has rendered additional information for the historical reconstruction of the site and its connections to the surrounding towns. Three fields were opened, A, B, and C. A large building was found in field A; tombs and a baptistery were found in field B; and in field C five rooms were dug and showed a large amount of pottery.
