Fieldwork Opportunity: Study and Dig with the Apolline Project on the Slopes of Mt. Vesuvius

Call for participants – Study and Dig with the Apolline Project on the Slopes of Mt. Vesuvius

Call for participants – Winter, spring and summer intensive one- and two-week courses offered in specialized areas of archaeological research, in addition to summer fieldwork opportunities.

The Apolline Project is an open research network, which sheds light on the hitherto neglected past of the area to the north of Mt. Vesuvius, in the Bay of Naples. The project has run actively since 2004 and has several components, with current major work focusing on a Medieval church and a Roman villa with baths buried by the volcanoclastic debris of Vesuvius.

The Apolline Project is now accepting applications for its winter, spring, and summer lab courses as well as its summer 2014 field season. Offered lab courses include: human osteology, pottery, zooarchaeology, archaeobotany, Roman architecture and Roman marble. Selected participants will have the opportunity to spend additional time before and after their chosen program(s) at the project’s accommodations at no additional charge in order to better explore the region.
