DIG: “Villa degli Antonini” archaeological field school near Rome, July 2011

Seen on the Classics list:

We invite undergraduate and graduate students to take part in an archaeological fieldschool focusing on the remains of a large, 2nd century CE, probably imperial Roman villa in Genzano di Roma, about 20 miles south of the center of Rome next to the ancient Via Appia in the modern town of Genzano and the ancient territory of Lanuvium, during July 3-29. The 2011 season, which is our second campaign of investigation at the site, will further explore a large curving structure that is rich in multicolored glass mosaic fragments and in fragments of expensive floor and wall marble covering, as well as following up on results of geophysical surveying we conducted in 2011. No previous archaeological experience is required. Students will experience all aspects of archaeological fieldwork and will receive 6 semester hours of credit through the Department of Classics & General Humanities at Montclair State University. Cost is $3,500 plus airfare and tuition, which varies depending on in-state or out-of-state status.

People who are interested may contact Dr. Deborah Chatr Aryamontri, aryamontrid AT mail.montyclair.edu, or me, rennert AT mail.montclair.edu
