Graduate Group in the Art and Archaeology of the Mediterranean World

The Graduate Group in the Art and Archaeology of the Mediterranean World (AAMW) is an interdisciplinary program for research and teaching of archaeology,[1] particularly archaeology and art of the ancient Mediterranean (Greece and Rome), Egypt, Anatolia, and the Near East, based in the Penn Museum of the University of Pennsylvania.

History

Doctoral work in Mediterranean and Near Eastern Archaeology has been a feature of the University of Pennsylvania since 1898, largely in response to the excavations undertaken by the Penn Museum. Nearly 200 dissertations in Old World Archaeology and Art have been produced at Penn in the course of the last century.

The eminent archaeologist Rodney Young, the director of the Penn Museum's excavations at Gordion[2] that uncovered the royal tomb of King Midas, strengthened the graduate program during the 1960s and 1970s.

Core faculty

The current Chair of the Program is Thomas F. Tartaron. Other notable faculty include Philip P. Betancourt, Lothar Haselberger, Holly Pittman, and C. Brian Rose.
