This contribution represents an updated summary of the research currently underway in the territory of Castronovo di Sicilia, as part of the ERC project “The Archeology of Regime Change: Sicily in Transition”. This project aims to investigate the effects of regime changes on demography, material culture, social structure, and economics in Byzantine, Islamic and Norman-Swabian Sicily. In the territory of Castronovo the Italian-English team is investigating the Byzantine fortress on Mount Kassar, the multi-layered site (from Roman times to the present day) of Casale San Pietro, the Colle San Vitale (10-18th century?) and the actual historical center of Castronovo.
