Archaeology - Italian Renaissance Register View Cart

Have you ever wondered why travelers, artists, poets, scientists and musicians have flocked to the Eternal City for hundreds of years? You probably thought it was to see paintings, hear music, listen to poetry and eat great food, right? Wrong! It's archaeology! Of course! In this camp we will survey some of the tumultuous events, personalities and times that characterize Rome, a city that haunts the history of Western Civilization like no other with the possible exceptions of Athens and London. We know from history, scence and art what is supposed to have happened there, but what does archaeology have to say? How will you know? Why should you care? In this intense week, stories of this fabulous and mysterious city will emerge before your unbelieving eyes as you come to know Rome in the 16th century, based on the famous discoveries at the Crypta Balbi. Be prepared to find amazing things. Brace yourself. You'll want nothing so much as to go there yourself once this dig is done! Using the site from the fabled Campus Martius we will plumb the depths of what it meant to be Roman in its Renaissance Age the way professionals do. Don't miss this one, it is literally for the ages!
