Christopher Gregg received his BA and MA degrees in Latin from the University of Georgia; he earned his doctorate in Classical Archaeology from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in 2000 with the dissertation “The Legacy of Ganymede: Homoerotic Images in Roman Art.”  Gregg’s research interests include urban development of Roman cities, the interpretation of mythological images in Roman homes, and the portraiture of Antinous.  He has taught twice at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome and been a visiting lecturer at UNC-Chapel Hill and The George Washington University.  He is also a frequent speaker for the Smithsonian’s Resident Associate Program.  Gregg’s field work includes four seasons as Registrar for the Kalamazoo College/University of Colorado Excavations at the Villa of Maxentius (Rome), two seasons as Registrar for the NC State Roman Aqaba Project (Jordan), and seven seasons as Registrar on the University of Georgia’s Yasmina Excavations at Carthage (Tunisia).  Gregg is currently finalizing a chapter on circus race-horse breeding and the Yasmina Necropolis for the excavation monograph. Gregg has an article in Archaeological News, “Roman Politics and Celtic Tradition: the Imperial Cult Site at Lugdunum” (1997) and an article appendix, “Material Culture from the 2005 Villa of Maxentius Season” in The Memoirs of the American Academy (2006).  In the summer of 2010, he is scheduled to co-direct the Vergilian Society’s Cumae III summer study tour around the Bay of Naples.
