Dig and Study on the Slopes of Mt. Vesuvius

Apolline Project

Call for participants - Study and dig with the Apolline Project on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius

Call for participants – Summer intensive one and two week courses offered in human osteology and roman and medieval pottery, 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 summer 2014 lab courses as well as its summer 2014 field season. Offered lab courses include: human osteology, Roman pottery and Medieval pottery. Selected participants will have the opportunity to spend additional time before and after their chosen program(s) at the project’s accommodations for no additional charge in order to better explore the region.

This year we will be offering a select number of scholarships to participants.
