Call for participants - Spring break classes and Summer Fieldwork

Call for participants – Spring break classes, Summer boot camp in physical anthropology, and excavation of a Roman villa with baths on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius

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 open to applications for the 2013 lab and field activities, which can be divided into three groups: lab works during Spring break, Summer fieldwork at the Roman villa with baths in Pollena Trocchia, Summer School in Human Osteology at the Medieval church in Pernosano.
