Summer School at Herculaneum
The Herculaneum Society is pleased to announce scholarships for undergraduates and postgraduates to participate in two summer schools in the archaeology, history and culture of Herculaneum and other Vesuvian sites, 22-26 June 2015 and 7-11 September 2015. The schools will be operated by Dr Christian Biggi, Director of BIG Heritage Consultancy, with the assistance of by Dr Joanne Berry, author of The Complete Pompeii. You will be taught by a team with many years' experience in operating schools, and who have been closely involved in major initiatives in Vesuvian archaeology. You will stay in a luxurious 4* hotel in Ercolano, with easy access to the Herculaneum excavations. Appearances by guest specialists in archaeology and history add an extra dimension. On this year's courses, a session led by Dr Dirk Obbink of Oxford University, world-renowned papyrologist and trustee of the Herculaneum Society, is planned.
The Society can offer up to four scholarships of £500 (€650) each to deserving students. In addition, there are two free places on each course for accompanying staff to help with oversight of students. Please enquire with the Society if you are interested in taking this task on (firstname.lastname@example.org).
