Title of Project:
 Gathering Places: Fountain Houses in the Athenian Agora
Advisor: William Hutton

Fountain houses were important structures in the marketplace of Classical Athens. Gaining a more holistic understanding of the buildings, through archaeological, literary, and artistic evidence will help to create a greater understanding of Athenian society as a whole.

The Honors Fellowship is helping to facilitate my travel to Greece this summer, as well as to purchase necessary equipment to conduct my research.
