Appia Antica Walk

Appia Antica Walk

Date Published: Feb. 13, 2017

Just one day after returning from the trip to Umbria, a selection of students took advantage of an optional excursion down the Ancient Appian Way with some guest guides. Two members of a local environmental organization called Legambiente offered a walking tour to students down a stretch of the Appia Antica. The guides spoke in Italian but Dr. Hatlie was there to translate! They discussed the historical importance of the road, the manner in which it was built, the naturalistic aspects of the area, and discussed their organization’s role in maintaining the structure against erosion and litter. Students got up close to current excavations and walked a good portion of the ancient road. This excursion offered a unique opportunity to explore the ancient history in our own backyard!
