Jessica Tilley


Jess received her BA in Classical Civilizations and Latin from DePauw University and is now finishing her MA in Classical Archaeology at Florida State. Her primary research is focused on death and cult during the Roman period in Greece through which she explores questions of identity and cross-cultural relations. Her MA paper is on the Roman tombs at Corinth and involves epigraphical, art historical, and social historical analyses that address issues of continuity and change in the funerary landscape dating from the Greek to Late Antique periods. Archaeological projects that Jess has worked on as either supervisor, excavator, or survey field walker include the Trasimene Archaeological Project, Cosa Excavations, the American Excavations at Kenchreai, and the American Excavations at Corinth. Fun fact, her favorite thing about working on site in Greece is the site dogs!
