Classical Archaeology

Students measuring for the IMPERO Project

The department offers comprehensive training in both Greek and Roman archaeology, providing opportunities for students to participate in active fieldwork, including the IMPERO (Interconnected Mobility of People and Economy along the River Ombrone) Project in Italy. Current areas of faculty interest range from ancient Greek urbanism to Roman Late Antiquity, and the history of the discipline. The department also enjoys partnership with other archaeologists across the university in the Institute for European and Mediterranean Archaeology.
