Call for volunteers, 2010 field season

The Doors of Pompeii and Herculaneum Project is seeking volunteers for the 2010 field season. The project will last for three weeks, from July 15th-August 3rd, 2010. Volunteers will receive hands-on training in the spatial analytical techniques required for data collection, and instruction on the fundamentals of Roman domestic architecture, with a particular focus on construction methodologies and house layout. The project will also include tours of the Forum, Colosseum, and Palatine Hill in Rome, a day trip to Ostia, and visits to other archaeological sites and museums around the Bay of Naples. Students with an interest in art history, archaeology, classics, or a related field are welcome to apply.

The DOPAHP team will be staying at Camping Zeus (located just outside the Marine Gate at Pompeii) for the majority of the project. The campground has hot showers, laundry facilities, and internet access; shops, restaurants, and a supermarket are a short walk away. Team members will be required to purchase a tent and will be expected to cover their personal expenses, including food, while in Italy. All travel and lodging expenses (including flights from and returning to Edinburgh) will be covered by DOPAHP. As a portion of the project’s costs will be shared by all members of the team, however, a £250 registration fee is also required. 

To apply, download an application form. Please email completed forms to doorsofpompeiiandherculaneum@gmail.com by March 26, 2010. Now March 12, 2010.
