Status: Second Year
Emanuela received a B.A. (Honours) in Classical Studies from the University of Alberta in 2007, and completed an M.A. in Classical Archaeology in 2009 at the same institution. Emanuela has surveyed and excavated at Kastro-Kallithea (Thessaly, Greece), Porolissum (Romania), and the underwater Roman harbour of Sanitja (Menorca, Spain). Currently she is working at the site of Petra (Jordan) with Brown University. Her research interests are varied but they primarily include the Roman province of Dacia, with particular focus on its religious practices and landscapes before, during, and after Roman rule. She is also fascinated by the use and abuse of the Daco-Roman past in the creation (and constant re-creation) of modern Romanian identity. More generally her interests also include the art and archaeology of the Roman provinces (especially in the Roman East and along the Danubian frontier), archaeological theory, ancient religious practices (especially Roman Mithraism), underwater archaeology, and mortuary archaeology.
