Apolline Project: illuminating the dark side of Vesuvius
Welcome to the official website of the Apolline Project, a multi-disciplinary research project investigating the northern ‘dark’ side of Vesuvius– the ancient territories of Nola and Neapolis. Fields of study include archaeology, volcanology and paleobotany. Here you will find information about our work, especially the excavation of a post-79 AD Roman villa and baths at Pollena Trocchia near Naples. For those seeking more detailed information, links are provided to our reports and publications. An overview of the achievements and scope of the project can be found along with news about all the latest developments. In 2011 the project was awarded the European Archaeological Heritage Prize, to see why please follow the link. We are able to offer places on our excavations to volunteers and students seeking to develop their archaeological skills; more details can be found here. This site is continually being improved and updated and we thanks visitors for their patience and feedback as it continues to develop. Suggestions, comments and queries can be submitted at our ‘contact us’ page.  

Benvenuto nel sito web ufficiale dell'Apolline Project, il progetto di ricerca multidisciplinare sul "lato oscuro" del Vesuvio, ossia il versante settentrionale del vulcano, e più in generale sugli antichi territori di Neapolis e Nola. Ti consigliamo di cominciare la navigazione nella sezione Vesuviani, ed in particolare le pagine sul nostro progetto-bandiera, lo scavo integrale delle terme romane di Pollena Trocchia, e sugli altri siti che stiamo investigando, come le "terme azzurre" di Lauro e la chiesa altomedievale di Roccarainola. I giovani esploratori possono scaricare giochini e vedere video. Incoraggiamo vivamente i docenti delle scuole primare e secondarie a mettersi in contatto con noi per organizzare progetti didattici e visite guidate ai siti archeologici dove operiamo. Se sei un archeologo, ti consigliamo di esplorare la sezione Academics, dove si possono anche consultare gli articoli che abbiamo prodotto finora. Se vuoi prendere parte alle nostre attività di scavo e ricerca, segui questo link. Se vuoi metterti in contatto con noi per saperne di più su quello che stiamo facendo o se vuoi visitare uno dei siti archeologici, non esitare a scriverci.
