Classical Archaeology in Italy

Please Note - Program Cancelled for Summer 2018

This program is cancelled for summer 2018. Students interested in the program for future terms should contact Dr. Hannah Friedman directly.

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. The settlement became a Roman colony in the 2nd century BCE, because of its strategic location along a major trade route. The visible remains of the Roman colony include a theatre, a bath complex, a forum, an amphitheater and urban blocks.


This is a multi-year project with plans for expansion in the future. Our first season will involve geophysical survey of the site and the second will continue survey and begin excavations of a domestic quarter. No experience necessary, only a good attitude and a sense of adventure.
