Excavations of the Baths at Roman Carsulae (ITALY)

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Italy

Description
We are now accepting applications from students and volunteers to participate in our eleventh season of excavations of the baths at Roman Carsulae.

Project and Location
The Roman city of Carsulae, founded in the third century BCE along the Via Flaminia in modern Umbria, was extensively excavated by the Soprintendente for Umbria, Umberto Ciotti, from the 1950s to the 1970s. He uncovered a number of its public buildings including the forum, amphitheatre and theatre and transformed the entire area into an archaeological park. In 2004, our team, under the direction of Professor Jane K. Whitehead of Valdosta State University and the Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici dell’Umbria commenced a long term project to re-excavate the baths, which are located just south of the city limits and were left exposed after Ciotti’s excavation 40 years earlier.

In 2011, we received grants from Italian sources, in particular the Associazione Valorizzazione del Patrimonio Storico, which enabled us to construct a roof over the remains of the baths. Because it affords greater protection from the elements, during the 2012 and 2013 seasons we were able to open up areas that were more fragile, thus further exposing the structure.
