New edition of Cronache Ercolanesi out

The latest edition of Cronache Ercolanesi (no. 39 / 2009) has just come out. For those who don't know it, it is the journal of the Centro Internazionale per lo Studio dei Papiri Ercolanesi (International Centre for the Study of the Herculaneum Papyri).

As you might expect most of the papers are on various papyri texts, which I don't have time to type up here (although if you want a list of the contents, then please feel free to email me).

The two non-text based articles which may be of interest are:

Agathe Antoni: Voyageurs francais à la découverte d'Herculanum aux XVIIIéme et XIXème siècles

Maria Paola Guidobaldi and Domenico Esposito: Le nuove ricerche archeologiche nella Villa dei Papiri di Ercolano

This second article is actually quite important, as it is the first archaeological news from the Villa of the Papyri area for a long time and contains a description of all the recent work carried out in the last couple of years by the Soprintendenza. If you're interested in a copy of this article, email me and I can let you know how to get a copy.
