Dr. Andrew L. Goldman has been a member of the GU History Department since 2002, and Chair of the Classical Civilizations Department since 2007. His fields of special interest are ancient history (Roman and Greek), classical archaeology, and the classical languages (Latin and Greek). He received his BA from Wesleyan University in 1988, and his MA and PhD from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 1993 and 2000, respectively. He has spent several years living and teaching abroad: he lived in Ankara, Turkey, as a Fulbright Fellow and instructor at Bilkent University (1995-97), and in Rome as a teacher at Duke University's Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies (1999-2000). He has worked at numerous ancient sites in the Mediterranean, including Çatal Höyük, Oinoanda, Kerkenes Dag, and, most frequently, Gordion.
Since 1992, he has been an active member of the excavation team at the ancient site of Gordion (central Turkey), where he has been studying the economic and social history of the small Roman-period settlement that flourished there between the 1st and 5th centuries AD. He has recently published several Latin inscriptions and the funerary finds from the Roman cemeteries at Gordion. During the summer of 2004 and 2005, with the aid of a Loeb Foundation Grant from Harvard University, he directed a team of archaeologists and assistants in what was the first systematic excavations of the Roman town on the site. In the course of this fieldwork, Roman weapons and armor were unearthed, providing the first concrete evidence for the hypothesis that the town was a minor Roman military site. The material, dating from the first and second centuries AD, is some of the earliest Roman military equipment excavated in the Roman East, and the site is the only Roman military base of its period to ever have been explored in Turkey. He is currently at work on the publication of the remains at this site, most recently discussed in his article in Anatolian Studies (60 (2010) 129-46), "A Pannonian auxiliary's epitaph from Roman Gordion".
In addition to his work at Gordion, Dr. Goldman has also produced recent publications and presented lectures on a variety of archaeological subjects, including Roman cemeteries ("The Roman-period Cemeteries at Gordion in Galatia", Journal of Roman Studies 20 (2007), 299-320), Roman military equipment ("Weapons and the Army", Chap. 8 in J. Evans (ed.) A Companion to the Archaeology of the Roman Republic (Wiley-Blackwell 2013), 123-40), and Roman rings and carved intaglios ("The Octagonal Gemstones from Gordion: Observations and Interpretations" in Anatolian Studies 64 (2014) 163-97).

Dave Oosterhuis joined the
faculty of Classical Civilizations at Gonzaga in the fall of 2010 and is
excited to be part of a growing and dynamic department. He holds a BA
(University of Iowa, 1992) and an MA in Classics (University of Minnesota,
2003), and a PhD from the University of Minnesota in Classical and Near Eastern
Studies (2007). Before coming to Gonzaga he taught at Macalester College and
the University of Saint Thomas, both in Saint Paul, Minnesota. He also taught Latin at Eden Prairie High School. He has spent two
summers in Rome, one studying Latin and the other in the American Academy’s
Summer Program in Archaeology. As part of the latter he participated in the
joint SUNY-Buffalo/Univeritá di Siena excavations at Bomarzo in northern Lazio,
an experience that, although enjoyable, reinforced his vocation as a
philologist, not an archaeologist. As a former high school Latin teacher he
believes strongly in outreach and has continued to visit schools and lecture on
topics related to the ancient world. He has also spent five summers with Upward
Bound programs, teaching disadvantaged high-schoolers the basics of Greek and
Latin. His specialties are Augustan Rome and its reception, the poet Vergil and
the body of literature around him (including biographies, commentaries, and apocrypha), the portrayal of ancient Rome in popular
culture, and musical reception of the Classics.
