Speakers: Maurizio Forte, Ph.D., Regis Kopper, Ph.D., Katherine McCusker, Duke University
This year’s Bass Connections project team is building on work begun in 2017-2018. Team members are conducting a digital investigation of the archaeological landscape of Vulci, Cerveteri and Tarquinia, the most important and visited pre-Roman sites in central Italy. All three sites include thousands of uninvestigated tombs and urban spots, hidden by crops, vegetation and modern settlements.
Team leader Maurizio Forte is the William and Sue Gross Professor of Classical Studies and a professor of Art, Art History & Visual Studies. He directs the Vulci 3000 Project and the Dig@Lab.
This presentation is sponsored by the John Hope Franklin Center and Bass Connections. A light lunch will be served. Parking is available in nearby Trent Rd. and Erwin Rd. parking decks. The series provides 1-hour parking vouchers to guests.
