Fieldwork 2016: Mackenzie Davis

Mackenzie Davis is currently a sophomore at Monmouth College, majoring in Classics and History; with the support of CAMWS she will participate in Najerilla Valley Research Project in La Rioja, Spain. Mackenzie has shown exceptional initiative and preparation, participating in a Palatine East Pottery Project last summer under the direction of her professor Victor Martinez. This summer support will allow her to build on this knowledge in the field, working under Professor Martinez again but in exactly the kind of field setting that is the critical complement to laboratory analysis. Mackenzie plans a career in teaching and research in Roman archaeology. The summer experience will be a significant step in her professional development.
