Darius ARYA DIGS
He has lived in Rome, Italy for almost 18 years. From studying Latin and Greek in high school, to exploring Italy as and undergrad, to researching for my PhD, to living and digging and teaching, he has come to know ancient Rome and its empire in intimate terms.
Now, with greater collaboration, he's able to explore beyond the Romans, though ancient civilizations remain a fixed point, and examine the ways in which contemporary society interacts with the past, for better and for worse.
Join Darius on his latest endeavor, which will take him throughout Italy for the next two months, starting July 18, 2016; get ready to hear him speak a lot of Italian, too!
