Matthew Egger (CAS’14) awarded Fulbright grant

April 9th, 2014 in Alumni, Archaeology, awards, Students

Matthew Egger, Archaeology graduating senior was awarded a Fulbright grant for next year.

He will be attending the first year of a Master’s program in classical archaeology and ancient numismatics at the University of Tuebingen in Germany.  The research area of focus is a site on the Western Anatolian coast dating to the Hellenistic Period called Herakliea on Latmos.

During the summer months Matthew will be engaged in archaeological excavations under direction of Junior Professor Richard Posamentir, where he will apply the technical skills and cultural-historical knowledge gained at Tuebingen working directly in the field with a German research team.

German and American practices of archaeology are quite different; Americans approach the practice of archaeology through an anthropological lens, whereas in Germany, archaeology is its own unique discipline.  The goal of this project is to help to bridge the disciplinary gap between German and American styles of archaeology, while coming to more accurately understand our shared Western material heritage.
