Berkeley Ancient Italy Roundtable

The Berkeley Ancient Italy Roundtable (BAIR) is a biennial event that brings together students of the archaeology, history, and art history of ancient Italy (broadly defined both geographically and chronologically) based in the Bay Area and further afield in the western United States. Our aim is to promote interaction among this group of scholars with a view to advancing the development of a more cohesive professional community. Interested members of the public are also encouraged to attend.
