Professor of Classics, Dartmouth College

Roger UlrichI joined the Classics Department of Dartmouth College in 1989, after teaching in the Department of Art History at Rice University in Houston, Texas for five years. My courses cover topics dealing with Roman Archaeology, Ancient Technology, Mythology, and Latin language. Since 1991 I've also led undergraduate programs from Dartmouth for intensive ten-week study terms in Italy, where we focus on Roman sites and museums from Ravenna in the north to the archaeology of Sicily. Areas of particular interest and study include Roman architecture (especially the buildings and topography of Rome, Latium, and Campania) and ancient technology. My book entitled Roman Woodworking was published in 2007 by Yale University Press. I am a contributor and co-editor of the Blackwell Companion to Roman Architecture which was published in December 2013. For the past five years I have been developing ways to capture artifacts and archaeological sites with a 3D camera and have designed a classroom at Dartmouth to use these images with students. My students and I have also been developing a new website that focuses on Trajan's Column. From 2007-2012 I served as Chair of the Classics Department.
