    Excavating the Baths at Carsulae

    EXCAVATIONS OF THE BATHS AT ROMAN CARSULAE
    June 16 – July 27, 2013

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

    Project and Location
    Carsulae was a Roman city that developed in the late third century BCE along the Via Flaminia, approximately 100 kilometers north of Rome in modern Umbria. The major public buildings of Carsulae were excavated from 1950 to 1970, but most of the ancient city still lies undisturbed in what is now a beautiful archaeological park.
