Project Title: 
Second Season: Horti Stabiani Database
Project Abstract: 
I am writing to apply for ITRG so that I may participate in two archaeological excavations in the Bay of Naples in Italy during Summer 2016. I am a 4th-year History of Art PhD student. I am studying ancient art and archaeology with Annetta Alexandridis. My goal for the summer is twofold. First, I plan to work Kathryn Gleason (Dept of Landscape Architecture) at the ancient Roman villas in Castellammare di Stabia, developing a database that we began the previous summer. The fieldwork at the ancient Stabian villas is focused on analyzing ancient gardens, a topic that is intimately connected to my dissertation.  My second goal is to continue field research in Rome, focusing particularly on the ancient gardens at Prima Porta.
