- The Shadow of Vesuvius: Pompeii and Herculaneum
|Coordinator(s)||Bronwyn Hopwood (email@example.com)|
On 24 August AD79 Mount Vesuvius erupted. Pompeii, Herculaneum, and the Campi Flegrei (fields of fire) were buried in the mass disaster. Excavation of the disaster site began in 1748 and in 1997 it received World Heritage status. Today the Vesuvian region hosts millions of tourists annually. This unit is a multi-disciplinary study of the Vesuvian mass disaster, and controversies arising from the excavation, conservation, and display of its sites, artefacts, and human remains. The core modules investigate the Forensics and Volcanology of the disaster. Elective modules enable students to explore Pompeii and Herculaneum from a range of disciplinary perspectives and to appreciate the contribution of forensics and volcanlogy to the study of this mass disaster.
