Hoff receives grant for archaeological research in Turkey
School of Art, Art History & Design Professor of Art History Michael Hoff has received a nearly $200,000 grant from the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Embassy in Ankara for his archaeological research in Turkey. Since 2005, the University of Nebraska has been excavating the remains of the ancient city of Antiochia ad Cragum, located on the southern Turkish coast. This ancient city was founded in the middle of the 1st century A.D. by Antiochus of Commagene, a client-king of Rome. The grant is budgeted over four years and is earmarked for cultural heritage projects. Hoff plans to use the grant to focus on preserving the Roman mosaics they have found at the site.
