Dr. David Gilman Romano also sent in the recently printed Report of Activities of the successful Summer 2020 Parrhasian Heritage Park Virtual Field School held during four days last July:
This was our 10th consecutive Field School and it included (virtually) undergraduate students and graduate students from the University of Arizona as well as students and colleagues from across the country and many in Europe and Greece.
The UA Anthropology undergraduates included Bobby Gamba ’20, Katrina Kuxhausen-DeRose ’21 who reported on their work with Giuseppe Biagini, Director of ITKI US and Andrea Riehle ’21 from the College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture who assisted with the organization of the meeting. The Anthropology graduate students attending the meeting included Laryssa Shipley and Lauren Sides. There were also many UA Classics alumni involved in the Virtual Field School.
The Parrhasian Heritage Park initiative was first proposed by the Mt. Lykaion Excavation and Survey Project in 2003 and its goal is to create Greece’s first large scale cultural heritage park (675 square kilometers) in the area where Arcadia, Messenia and Elis meet in the southwest Peloponnesos. Each summer, the Field School meets in a small village in Arcadia, for ten days to two weeks, to promote the creation of the Park. More information can be found at http://parrhasianheritagepark.org.
During the Virtual Archaeological Institute of America meeting in early January, Professor Mary Voyatzis presented to the Friends of INSTAP (Institute of Aegean Prehistory) “Results of the Recent Greek-American investigations at the Sanctuary of Zeus on Mt. Lykaion.”
During the same Archaeological Institute of America Virtual meeting I presented “The Via Flaminia, the Campus Martius and the Agrimensores in Rome” to one of the online sessions on Roman landscapes.
