Dominic Machado earned a BA (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) in Ancient History and Economics from Dartmouth College in 2009, where he wrote an honors thesis on Marcus Claudius Marcellus. In the fall of 2010, he entered the Penn post-baccalaureate in Classical Studies. His interests include the development of Roman militarism during the conquest of the Mediterranean, Roman numismatics and the reception of Classics in modern entertainment.

Sara Jones received a Bachelor of Arts in Classics with Distinction in the Major from the University of California in Santa Barbara in 2010. She volunteered for two seasons on the Priniatikos Pyrgos Archaeological Project in East Crete, and in 2008 she began work as a Research Assistant for Dr. Erickson (UCSB), focusing on the Classical pottery from the site. The following summer, she returned to the Greek island in order to analyze pottery for her own research on ceramic production and trade during the Hellenistic period.

Stephen’s interests include Anglo-Saxon language and culture; sociocultural implications surrounding Medieval Latin, heroic and epic poetry (English, Spanish, Latin, Old English, Greek); the history of the English language; and church history. While at Miami University, he completed a senior honors thesis about the Old English Biblical-Epic poem "Exodus." Stephen presented his findings at the 2011 Southeastern Medieval Conference in Decatur, Ga. He also spent a semester in India with the Dalai Lama and Tibetan exile community studying language ideology and oppression.
