Shanna Ingram is a fourth year biology student with a minor in classics. Under the direction of associate professor Spencer Pope, Faculty of Humanities, she and a team of students traveled to Metaponto, Italy. The goal: To piece together the history and artifacts of the ancient Greek settlement of Metaponto.

Dr. Spencer Pope, an archaeologist and professor of Classics at McMaster, is working his way backwards in time from modern Italy through the Roman empire, going back nearly 2,600 years in total, to a period when the city of Metaponto was a major Greek settlement on the Mediterranean.

McMaster University and the Department of Classics are pleased to announce the launch of the Centre for Ancient Numismatics (CAN). The CAN creates a platform for hands-on, interactive learning and dynamic research focused on ancient coinage.
