Herculaneum Graffiti Project
This summer Dr. Holly Sypniewski and three Millsaps Latin students will participate in the Herculaneum Graffiti Project in Italy, directed by Dr. Rebecca Benefiel (Washington and Lee U.). Students will work on-site within the taverns, shops and homes of ancient Herculaneum to locate, measure and digitize the ancient graffiti preserved by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 CE. The students will also conduct research on the inscriptions and contribute their work to EAGLE, an international database of ancient inscriptions. This is multi-year project offers Millsaps students and exciting way to apply their Latin skills in new contexts. Contact Dr. Holly M. Sypniewski for more information.
