Research Interests

Alex Walthall specializes in the material culture of the ancient Mediterranean region, particularly the archaeology of ancient Sicily. Alex’s research has explored issues ranging from the visual language of Hellenistic monarchy and the impact of agricultural taxation on trade and economic performance in the ancient world to the relationship between numismatics and archaeology.

Alex currently serves as field director of the Contrada Agnese Project (CAP) at Morgantina, an ancient Greek and Roman city in central Sicily. This long-term excavation and research project investigates developments that occurred in the urban center of Morgantina between the 3rd and 1st centuries BCE.
