A University of Nebraska-Lincoln group, led by assistant professor Ece Erdogmus of The Durham School, crosses many miles and centuries each summer. With her specialization in masonry restructures and a love of her homeland, Erdogmus leads restoration of a Roman temple from the third century C.E., in the ancient city of Antiocheia ad Kragos on Turkey's southern coast. She developed the project with art history professor Michael Hoff from UNL and professor Rhys Townsend from Clark University, and since 2005, UNL students have joined the field work team. Funding has been provided by the National Science Foundation and Harvard Loeb Classical Library Foundation, as well as UNL funding.
