Since 1991 he has also led undergraduate programs from Dartmouth for intensive ten-week study terms in Italy, where open-air study focuses 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, building techniques, and topography of Rome, Latium, and Campania) and ancient technology. His book entitled Roman Woodworking was published in 2007 by Yale University Press. He was a contributor and co-editor of the Blackwell Companion to Roman Architecture which was published in December 2013. With student research assistants he has also been developing a new website that focuses on Trajan's Column. A continuing project is an online database hosted by Flickr of images from the Roman world for use by the general public, students, and professionals. With research support from Dartmouth College he has been developing ways to capture artifacts and archaeological sites with a 3D camera and designed a classroom at Dartmouth to use these images with students. From 2007-2012 he served as Chair of the Classics Department.
