This year, the American Academy in Rome’s Classical Summer School, founded in 1923, marks its centennial. Over the years, countless teachers, archaeologists, and other classicists immersed themselves in all aspects of Roman antiquity, shaping the scholarship and careers of generations of classicists, as well as helping to define the field itself.

If you participated in the Classical Summer School, we would love to hear from you. Please submit a memory or photograph to css100 [at] aarome.org (css100[at]aarome[dot]org).

Read a brief history of the Classical Summer School, originally published in the fall–winter 2021 issue of AAR Magazine.
