Fieldwork Opportunity: Scholarships for Villa of the Antonines

We would like to announce that two $1,000 scholarships have become available for students from any American university attending the 2012 “Villa of the Antonines” archaeological field school that we direct in Genzano di Roma, Italy, in the Alban Hills just outside of Rome.

We are still accepting applicants for the field school, which runs from June 30- July 27.  We would appreciate it if you would pass this information on to your students.

For further information about the scholarships, go to

http://www.montclair.edu/chss/center-heritage-archaeological-studies/projects/italy/ralphjtorracoscholarship/

As we mentioned in an announcement in January, the site includes a monumental bath complex and evidence of decoration with precious marbles from around the Mediterranean—features which suit the site’s traditional description as an imperial villa. This year we will devote special attention to the building that we were able to identify as amphitheater in 2012 and that we believe may be the setting where emperor Commodus earned the nickname “Roman Hercules” after killing wild animals in the arena.
