The University of Maryland's project in Stabiae, Italy, was recently featured on the CBS Evening News.
The project is focused upon building a world-class archeological park at the site, just three kilometers from Pompeii, and began as a Master's thesis project by Castellammare di Stabia native, Leonardo Varone, M. Arch., '06, one of the speakers featured in the video.
Maryland's effort includes Professor Lindley Vann's Vesuvian region summer archeology courses, giving Maryland architecture students the opportunity for hands-on experience in archaeological exploration and documentation.
CBS reporter Kimberly Dozier also spoke to Nandor Mitrocsak, B.S. Arch. '06, M. Arch. '08, about his participation in the Summer 2008 course.
