On 10 March, AAR Hosts 7th “Lazio e Sabina” Archaeological Conference

On Wednesday 10 March the American Academy in Rome hosted the 7th edition of the conference “Lazio e Sabina”. This is
 part of a major three day event presented by the Soprintendenza per i
 Beni Archeologici del Lazio at the École
 Française de Rome (Tuesday 9 March), the AAR, and the Istituto Olandese a Roma (Thursday 11 March).

 For a full program for the conference, see here. More than 120 members of the archaeological community heard each of the 23 papers in the marathon all-day event at the American Academy.

Presiding at the AAR for
 the morning session (Colli Albani e area Tuscolana) was Eugenio La Rocca (Università degli Studi di Roma “La Sapienza”), 
and for the afternoon (Area costiera e isole) Mario Torelli (Università degli Studi di Perugia).

 Of particular interest to members of the AAR was a presentation by Anna 
Gallone of the Gabii Project on current University of Michigan excavations at the 
site of Gabii (near Palestrina), directed by Michigan’s Nicola Terrenato, with the patrocinio of the American Academy. For a description of this important new dig (with
 video) see here.
