ROMAN SOLDIER’S LETTER

In 2011, I was a participant in the summer institute of the American Society of Papyrologists. Receiving expert instruction and feedback from many other scholars, I edited a badly damaged letter of a Roman soldier who had gone some time without any letters from home. When my edition appeared in the Bulletin of the American Society of Papyrologists, a writer at Live Science contacted me. After that story broke, additional writers at National Geographic (Spain) and Público (Portugal) contacted me too. Rice University News also ran a story that featured a short video. Several other outlets picked up these stories in North America, Hungary, the UK, France, Turkey, Brazil, Switzerland, Vietnam, Spain, Finland, the Netherlands, Costa Rica, Dubai, China, Israel, Bangladesh, Portugal, India, Argentina, Italy, Croatia, Greece, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Poland. The original and main news stories plus some of their more notable iterations are listed below.
