Course Description


This online course - presented as an adventure game - introduces students to the art and archaeology of Rome, with assignments that focus on writing and the research process.

Throughout the course, students excavateartifacts at a digital dig site, visit museums, explore Roman monuments, and navigate the shadowy world of the tombaroli (tomb robbers) and mafia-runblack market for antiquities.
