Casey recently completed her freshman year at Johns Hopkins University where she is majoring in Archaeology and History of Art and minoring in Museums and Society. Her interests are in Classics, specifically colonization and culture in the Roman Empire, as well as gender relations and issues of cultural heritage in archaeology and the museum. This summer she will be attending Santa Susana Archaeological Project in Redondo, Portugal as a team member, and will gain experience with various fieldwork practices.

Excavation: Santa Susana Archaeological Project (Portugal)

Directors: Emma Ljung (Princeton), Rui Mataloto, Researcher (Universidade de Lisboa), Joey Williams (Basis Tucson North)

Santa Susana Archaeological Project is entering its fourth season of excavation at a villa complex dating from the 1st through 6th century CE. The work done at this site can provide information about the process of colonization and settlement in this region of the Roman Empire. Field school students will receive instruction in surveying techniques, the handling and processing of artifacts, and the recording of features of the site. This season will focus on the earliest section of the villa and the bath complex, and will use drones for aerial photography during survey.
