Thirteen CWRU Students Join Professors Adkins and Hammond for the Course “Rome on Site: The Archaeology of the Eternal City”

This summer, thirteen CWRU students joined Professors Adkins and Hammond for the course CLSC 326/426, “Rome on Site: The Archaeology of the Eternal City.” The group spent 17 days exploring Rome and Pompeii, Italy, and learning about ancient Roman archaeology, art, history, and culture on┬ásite – as well as where to find the best gelato shops in modern Rome!
