Elisabeth Woldeyohannes is the first University at Buffalo Student to join the UB Research Opportunity “Life and Death at the Roman Sanctuary at Podere Cannicci”. During the upcoming field school, Elisabeth will be working with Prof. Todd Fenton (MSU) and Prof. Alessandro Sebastiani (SUNY) to detect and document the late Etruscan-Roman necropolis located around the sanctuary.
The necropolis was recognized during the rescue excavations in the early 2000s when a bronze mirror depicting the Dioscuri was discovered. The mirror has been dated between the late 3rd and the 2nd c. BC.
We are all looking forward to starting this part of the project!
