Brock grad returns to share insights on Classics

By Mackenzie Roe

The Department of Classics welcomed graduate Maureen Carroll (BA ’75) for a special event on Monday, Oct. 28. Carroll met with current undergraduate and graduate students over lunch before giving a talk to department members on the role of fertility cults, votive offerings and women’s roles in early Roman religion. In the photo, she discusses a baby rattle in the shape of a hedgehog from the Department of Classics Cypriote collection with students. This specific artifact dates back to circa 323 BCE. Carroll is currently a professor of Roman Archeology for the Department of Archeology at the University of Sheffield in the U.K. Her visit followed a public lecture she gave at Brock on Sunday, Oct. 27 for the Niagara Peninsula Archaeological Institute of America on infancy and early childhood in Rome.
