Phoebe Thompson ’20

Phoebe Thompson Excavation

I'm majoring in classics because I enjoy the breadth of the discipline. In the future, I hope to continue to work on archaeological projects. My favorite class of the major so far has been Ancient Colonization with Leigh Lieberman. It was a great example of how interdisciplinary classics is. In that class, we drew from both archaeological and literary evidence to reconstruct patterns of movement across the Mediterranean in the ancient world. This class was really inspiring for my Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) project on ancient colonization in Sardinia.
