Archaeology student earns summer field work scholarship
Carthage student Tim Knoepke ’14 has been selected for the H.R. Butts Summer Scholarship for Fieldwork in Classical Archaeology. Eta Sigma Phi, a national honorary fraternity that develops and promotes interest in the study of Classics, announced the award during its annual conference April 5-7 in Winston-Salem, N.C.
Tim is a Classical Archaeology major from Jim Falls, Wis. He is spending a year studying Classics and Classical Archaeology at the American University in Rome, where he also is an intern at the Library of the American Academy. He recently wrote about the atmosphere in the city during the papal Conclave.
This summer, Tim will work at two field schools: one in Albania, studying under Professor David Hernandez of the University of Notre Dame; and another in Italy as part of the Roman Peasant Project, co-directed by Professor Kimberly Bowes of the University of Pennsylvania. The award is worth $2,000.
