Fieldwork Complete

The 2010 field season drew to a close at the beginning of August, with the members of the project team returning to their native lands (generally without incident). Given the financial constraints under which we were operating, the project must be judged to have been a complete success. In 17 days, 28 houses and over 550 doorways were surveyed, new friends were made (ciao zio Vincenzo!), and many a strange field song was penned. Again, thanks to the team, who, though sunburned and full of tomatoes/cheese/bread/tuna, were always in good spirits and worked tirelessly to complete the project on time. I could not have hoped for a better group of students.Though fieldwork is now complete, the Doors of Pompeii and Herculaneum Project blog will continue to be updated as data analysis progresses. I intend to give papers summarizing the results of this season's work both in the United States and UK over the coming months; the details of these talks will be posted here as they become available. Stay tuned!
