Field Update

Jim entertains the tourists
Halfway through the 2010 field season, the Doors of Pompeii and Herculaneum Project is progressing on schedule. To date, the team has analyzed over 300 doorways in a wide variety of domestic settings, establishing a corpus of data that will, no doubt, take the director a great many weeks to sort through (though he is looking forward to the task with much enthusiasm). We will be moving to Herculaneum later this week to continue survey in a further six houses, with fieldwork concluding in the middle of next week. Many thanks to everyone who has made the project a success so far, including the Soprintendenza and Direzione at Pompeii, the staff at Camping Zeus, and, of course, the DPHP team itself - Catherine, Katie, Janet, and Jim.
