Salvete, amici et amicae,
Members and other friends who were able to attend the associationís spring meeting at the University of Mary
Washington were a lucky group indeed. Outgoing president Mark Keith put together a glorious program, featuring
Susann Lusnia (Tulane University) on reading images of violence in Roman art, Cygnet Steer (Virginia Tech and Radford University) on the Roman calendar, and Angela Pitts (University of Mary Washington) on the sounds of war in the Iliad. I never leave a CAV meeting without ideas dancing in my head for the classroom and for my own appreciation of the ancient world, and this meeting was no exception.
