Study Abroad Showcase – 2016 TTU Faculty-led Programs

Classics – Summer 2: July 12-August 12, 2016 for Archaeology in Italy


Join an archaeological excavation of a Roman town in northern Italy! Located along an important trade route, Libarna was first settled in the 6th Century BCE by the Liguri, an indigenous Gallic people in northern Italy. Later becoming a Roman colony in the 2nd Century BCE, the visible remains of the colony include a theater, a bath complex, a forum, an amphitheater, and urban blocks.

This is a multi-year project with plans for expansion in the future. The first phase involves a geophysical survey of the site followed by a continued survey and excavations of a domestic quarter. The program is open to all Texas Tech students with a good attitude and a sense of adventure! No excavation experience necessary. Students will earn 6 credit hours at the 4000 + level.
