The Gabii Project is an international archaeological initiative under the direction of Nicola Terrenato of the University of Michigan. The field research of the Gabii Project began with a geophysical survey of ca. 40 hectares of Gabii's urban center in 2007 and 2008. After the 2007 season, initial findings encouraged a full-scale magnetometry survey of the urban area and this was completed by autumn 2008. The initial findings presented evidence of a previously unknown urban grid within the line of Gabii's ancient walls, and it was on this basis that major excavations commenced in June 2009. A second campaign of fieldwork was carried out during the summer of 2010. The initial phase of excavations will continue through 2013.
