In the 20th century, Cosa was the site of excavations carried out under the auspices of the American Academy in Rome, initially under the direction of the archaeologist Frank Edward Brown.
Brown and his team when they began the Cosa excavations in 1948.
The citadel was a fortified hill on which were built several temples, including the so-called capitolium of Cosa.
The Etruscan site (called Cusi or Cosia) may have been where modern Orbetello stands; a fortification wall in polygonal masonry at Orbetello's lagoon may be in phase with the walls of Cosa.
The position of Cosa is distinct, rising some 113 metres above sea level and is sited 140 km northwest of Rome on the Tyrrhenian Sea coast, on a hill near the small town of Ansedonia.

The Arx was positioned at the highest and southernmost point of the colony.
Its limits were defined by the Town Wall on the S and W sides, by cliffs on the NW side, and by the Arx Wall on the NE side.
This latter campaign aimed at understanding the history of the site between the imperial period and the Middle Ages.
Sample excavations took place over the whole site, with larger excavations on the Arx, the Eastern Height and around the Forum.
Brown also discovered a pit (mundus) that he thought was connected to the first rituals of foundation carried out at Cosa in 273 BC.
