Follow Saint Anselm Students on Archaeological Dig in Orvieto, Italy

June 3, 2007

dig photoStudents from Saint Anselm College join the University of Oklahoma Center for Classical Archaeology and Civilizations in Italy this May and June. You can follow the progress of the excavation by visiting www.anselmclassics.com. Students will be blogging, podcasting, and posting photos regularly during the time of the dig.

The excavation project is near Castel Viscardo, a town located at the southwest edge of Umbria approximately 8 miles northwest of Orvieto. Preliminary inspection of the area indicated the remains of what seems to be a Roman villa. This ‘villa’ lies immediately at the base of the immanence on which Castel Viscardo is located.

Last season (2006) uncovered many intriguing finds which posed more questions than answers. This 2007 season will focus on expanding trenches and unearthing clues which we hope will help us to unlock the mystery of the site.
