University of British Columbia
Training Excavation in Britain
Classical Studies 335
The 'Lunt' Fort at Baginton, Warwickshire, July-August, 2002

See Website:

The Department of Classical, Near Eastern and Religious Studies at the University of British Columbia will conduct a training excavation in July/ August 2002 at the 'Lunt', a Roman fort in central England, first built under Nero (in approx. 6O AD) in connection with the revolt of Boadicea.  Excavation began in the 196O's, and in 1988 UBC began work on the western defences.  The site is well-known for the reconstruction of areas where excavation is completed, including part of the eastern rampart and gateway, granary (now the site museum) and gyrus (cavalry training enclosure).

Students are trained in all aspects of excavation, and subject to satisfactory performance obtain six credits for Classical Studies 335, equivalent to one full-year course.  Students from other universities may take the course for transfer credit. There are no prerequisites.

The practicum will last for three weeks, from July 28- August 17.  Visiting lecturers will come to the site, and excursions to other places of interest will be organized. Baginton is located near Coventry (direct bus service to London Airports), very close to Warwick, Stratford-on-Avon and the Cotswolds.

Accommodation is at the University of Coventry (under two miles from the site) in six-person flats with private bedrooms and self-catering facilities.  Costs: students make their own travel arrangements to Britain and register at UBC with the appropriate fee.  A charge of 350 pounds covers the cost of accommodation, local staff, excavation fees, daily transportation, excursions, and refreshments on the site for the whole period. It does not include airfare.

A deposit of $1OO (made out to 'A.A. Barrett') is required. Early registration is recommended. In the event of cancellation before all the places are taken the deposit is refunded immediately (notice will be given when all the places are taken). After that, in the event of cancellation the deposit is refunded is if the place is filled by someone on the waiting list.

Bibliographical Web Site
I'd like to announce the web publication of the bibliographical web site Nomoi at

The bibliographical efforts thus far are largely, almost entirely, the work of Ilias Arnaoutoglou.  I have collaborated somewhat in getting the site up, and I will be maintaining it.  I hope before long myself to add material from before 1927.

I hope that you will appreciate the image of Themis in her oracular role and consult her with joy and success.
