The region of Sicily, thanks to its different cultural components, is an important case-study of the production of many goods.

Archaeological and archaeometric studies have been carried out on some Sicilian sites and shipwrecks, through seminars organised within the activities of the Chair of Archaeologic Research Methodology (Prof. G. Olcese) at Sapienza - Università di Roma (see the relevant pages of the site, “Papers” and “Shipwrecks and cargoes”).

Other areas of investigation in Sicily concern rock-cut units and sulphur.
