Launch of New ICS Program Brochure
Sponsored by International Catacomb Society
Saturday, October 21, 2017


The International Catacomb Society is pleased to launch its new informational brochure on International Archaeology Day 2017! The society was founded in 1980 by Boston art historian Estelle Shohet Brettman, Program Director of the Boston Society of the Archeological Institute of America and longtime docent at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts. During her tenure as AIA Program Director, Estelle brought archaeologists from Europe, the Middle East, and Asia to Boston. Many became "pillars" of the organization she founded for the study and conservation of catacombs in Rome. More details about the AIA's significant role in Estelle's training and mission as an archaeological enthusiast will be discussed in a special AIA panel in Boston in January, 2018. The new brochure of the International Catacomb Society, designed by Annewies van den Hoek, Beth Cohen, and Jessica Dello Russo, highlights the society's Shohet Scholars Program for research on the Ancient Mediterranean and online resources including the DAPICS collection and Vaults of Memory exhibit on the catacombs of Rome. The brochure can be downloaded from the site
