Special Projects

Department faculty and affiliated faculty direct several archaeological field and laboratory projects that provide research opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students:

The Tesserae Project

The Tesserae Project aims to provide a flexible and robust web interface for exploring intertextual parallels. The texts used in this project were gathered from many electronic text databases, including The Latin Library, The Perseus Project, DigilibLT, Open Greek and Latin Project, Musisque Deoque and Corpus Scriptorum Latinorum. 

The UB Artifacts Collection

The department owns a collection of around 300 antiquities from Greek, Roman, Celtic and Near Eastern cultures. These include oil lamps, ceramic vessels and shards, coins, jewelry and more. The artifacts are being identified and cataloged according to the standards of the American Alliance of Museums, and re-housed in archivally sound containers.
