His Colloquia Classica presentation, "The Past, the Present and a Trowel," will offer the audience an understanding of archeological research from the perspective of an excavation laborer.
"We will explore what it means to be at the most base level of upper-level classical archaeology and how quickly myths of becoming the next Indiana Jones are dispelled," Kuhn said.
The senior from Lincoln was one of 110 applicants seeking to fill 10 volunteer positions at the dig and among about 30 students overall. The dig is unique in Greece for its use of volunteer students, rather than Greek workers, in the archaeological process.
Kuhn's work was supported by the inaugural Clarence A.
Forbes scholarship, which was endowed by Nebraska alumna Carol A.
Probasco to honor her mentor, former classics professor Clarence
A. Forbes. The scholarship fund supports student travel to Greece
or Italy for study in an approved summer program.
