From 1932 to 1939, a team of archaeologists from Princeton University led an excavation at Antioch, an ancient city located in modern-day Turkey. The expedition uncovered a wealth of objects, ranging from marble statues and mosaics to coins and figurines. This semester, graduate students from Princeton and Harvard are learning about the religious diversity that characterized Antioch through the close study of its artifacts.
