A portion of the Domus Aurea, Nero’s palace in Rome, reportedly collapsed today due to water damage. The story appeared on the NYTimes website. When I visited the Domus Aurea years ago we were all required to wear hard-hats. Good thing! The collapse seems to be in a part of the building site that has not been open to visitors. No reports on whether the rest of the site remains open.

Congrats to Citadel/College of Charleston history graduate student Stefan Kosovych who will be presenting a paper “Commemoration of War during the Roman Republic and Early Principate” at the William & Mary Graduate Research Symposium, held March 26-27, 2010.
Presenting your work at a research conference is a terrific experience for a graduate student — a great way to get introduced to another aspect of the profession. In recent years, universities have developed new conferences designed specifically for graduate students. William & Mary’s annual conference draws students from a variety of disciplines from schools across the region.
