I am an archaeologist interested in the Roman economy and the daily life of the non-elite. I did my graduate work at the University of Leicester on Roman mines and the associated slave populations. I have a great deal of experience in archaeological fieldwork having conducted it in Jordan, Pompeii, Romania, England, Texas, and NW Arkansas.
I was happy to receive a call from my good friend Katie about conducting a project in Italy. This site is fascinating for its early foundation date, its location along a busy trade route, and its well preserved remains.
