Emperor Leopold I at UE

On March 14, friends of the department Alexandra Leich and Janet Lorence gave UE archaeology and history students the opportunity to view a late-17th century document signed by Emperor Leopold I.  Janet Lorence discovered the rare document at an auction on top of a stack of Newsweek magazines!  Nearly 100 students and faculty viewed the document and learned about its contents, the calligraphic aspects, and the history of the Habsburgs.  Thanks to all who attended!
