Gabrielle Westburg Åkerhielm Testimonial

Undergraduate student at John Cabot University 
Gabrielle Westburg ÅkerhielmStudying Art History in Rome, I had never taken Archeology courses before working with the Alberese Archaeological Field School. And I am so happy to have had this opportunity. The four weeks I spent on the excavations, learning how to work as an archeologist, has expanded my vision on art and artifacts and has offered me new context and methodologies for the objects I study. The Field School provided me with the opportunity to make greater connections between art and material, history and sociology, which are invaluable complements to my field.
