For many years the flagship of American archaeology in Italy, Cosa boasts a remarkable history that spans more than 1,300 years; founded on the eve of the first Punic war, it was destroyed sometime around 70 BCE and then substantially rebuilt under Augustus.

Cosa overlooks the modern coastal town of Ansedonia, in the province of Grosseto.  It occupies a promontory that enjoys stunning vistas over the Argentario Natural Park and the ancient harbor of Porto Ercole.
