Senior’s Rediscovery of Ancient Roman Coins Leads to Exhibition

Celebrating Collaborations

Time: 6:30

When Maggie Kurkoski ’12, working as a research assistant for Scott Bradbury, professor of classical languages and literatures, dug through the storage cabinets in the Caverno Room in Neilson Library, she came across a box, likely untouched in decades, filled with ancient Roman coins. Her curiosity piqued, she set to work analyzing, cataloguing and preparing the coins for display. Kurkoski’s exhibition, “Portable Rome: Exploring and Exhibiting Ancient Coins,” is the capstone project for her museums concentration.
