Tarraco, a site for the study of classical civilisations

The remains of ancient Tarraco are the setting for the ICAC, an institute devoted to research, training and dissemination of the knowledge provided by classical archaeology, specifically the ancient civilisations of the Mediterranean: Greek, Roman and others directly related to it.

The centre’s research focuses on the archaeology of ancient cities; the archaeology of landscape, population and territory; materials and trade in the ancient world; and classical archaeology and artistic productions.

The ICAC also organises three cross-disciplinary methodology programmes, which include environmental and palaeo-environmental archaeology, archaeometry, ICT applied to archaeology and textual sources, epigraphy and numismatics.
