Carolynn Roncaglia: Summer 2016 Plans

In July Assistant Professor Carolynn Roncaglia will be traveling with two classics students to Corinth, Greece. Both students will be working with Karen Garnett, Corinth's lamp expert, to document the hundreds of lamps from the Fountain of the Lamps. In her “spare” time there Professor Roncaglia also be working on some Greek and Latin inscriptions from the so-called Southeast Building.

In August she will be taking SCU students to the beautiful and castle-studded Aosta Valley in Italy to study Roman remains and inscriptions. This season they will be using Reflectance Transformation Imaging to document and study Latin inscriptions from the valley. They will be working in coordination with a Stanford team based at the Great St. Bernard Pass—where they still breed the dogs—to put together a larger study of how the Romans used this pass and its associated valleys over time.
