The course is aimed at graduate and postgraduate students interested in: history and archaeology of ancient Rome; Latin grammar and literature; preservation and enhancement of cultural heritage; methods and techniques to achieve it. The course requires basic knowledge of standard archaeological methods and procedures (typologies, excavation, and archaeological survey) and Computer Aided Design software. It can be used at different levels in graduate students’ careers to improve personal skills in the following areas/specializations: Classics, Classical Antiquity, Heritage management and/or planning of any kind of works in urban and/or rural areas, professional development in the field of Cultural Heritage, Archaeology and Tourism. For this reason, the course can be useful for approaching these issues also at higher levels of education and, in particular, may contribute to the orientation towards the choice of following studies/working experience.

  • Module 1 (first week) - Classics in Sapienza: Artifacts, Texts, Monuments, Landscape and History
  • Module 2 (second week) – Fieldwork: landscape archaeology and archaeological analyses of a multi-layered site in and or around Rome (Hadrian’s Villa near Tivoli).
