Vesuvian wines and more

If you happen to be in England and fancy a short trip to Cambridge or Reading, you might be interested in coming to one of these talks:

"A new view of old wines: Vesuvian vineyards before and after the Pompeian eruption"
Friday 26th of April (tomorrow!) at 1.15pm at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, Downing Street, Cambridge.

"Beyond Pompeii and Herculaneum: archaeology on the dark side of Vesuvius"
Wednesday 1st of May at 4pm at the Ure Museum (in the Humanities and Social Sciences Building) Whiteknights Campus, University of Reading.

The latter is a broad overview of what the Apolline Project is carrying out since 2004. For those who are acquainted already with the project, you will find also new interesting updates.
The talk in Cambridge provides some insights into the "wine ecosystem" (ecofacts, architecture, trade) before AD 79 and its changes after the eruption.

It would be nice for me to have a drink (or two!) with some of the contributors/followers of this blog after the speeches.
