Gabby Coggin talks to Oxford Middle School students at Archaeology Day

Dr. Ajootian and other members of the Classics community hosted Oxford Middle School Latin students on October 27 for a day of archaeological exploration. Students toured the Robinson Collection at the University Museum, heard from two UM students about their archaeological experiences in Greece and Belize, played Classics Jeopardy courtesy of our chapter of Eta Sigma Phi, and stayed for a lecture by Dr. James Hardin of Mississippi State in the evening.
