We're Here: Pompeii Food and Drink field season begins

Hello all, e set up to view the blog for their HSC revision.
Well we are here and have officially started our work this season, all be it just the pre scavi team meetings.
This years work will be done under interesting conditions, with no less than 3 Superintendants since last season and a fourth on the way. Added to this was news in the last couple of weeks that the state of emergency that has existed with regards to Pompeii has been lifted. What all this means is anyones guess, however, I tend to think conspiracy theories and see a new era approaching the scavi, full of new tourist $$ on the back of some new archaeological work and restoration that is hard to justify. Who knows..
Tomorrow we begin work.
