Third Herculaneum Conference

The Friends of Herculaneum Society is holding its Third Herculaneum Conference 11-13 June 2010 in Ercolano, Italy.

The programme includes talks by the new Director of the British School at Rome, Prof. Christopher Smith, and by the immediate past Director, Prof. Andrew Wallace-Hadrill; presentations by members of the Herculaneum Conservation project; site visit (including the Villa of the Papyri and the new boat museum) with Dr Maria Paola Guidobaldi, Director of Excavations, and Dr Domenico Camardo; an excursion up the slopes of Vesuvius; and a visit to Stabiae with Prof. Thomas Howe, Director of the Restoring Ancient Stabiae project.

The conference fee is £150 (£120 concessions) which includes all entrance fees and talks, welcome reception on Friday, dinner Fri/Sat and lunch Sat/Sun. Delegates need to arrange their own return transportation to Ercolano and accommodation; we have secured favourable rates at the new 4-star Miglio D'Oro hotel in Ercolano, and B&B accommodation is available to those who prefer it.

Delegates need to members of the Society; subscriptions start at £15 (concessions). For further information about the Society please visit http://www.herculaneum.ox.ac.uk/; for further details about the meeting please e-mail: herculaneum@classics.ox.ac.uk.

Please note that places are limited and we ask that people register by 16 April.
