Archaeology of Pompeii and Other Vesuvian Sites (AKA 500088)

by Pavel Titz

The course description

The course aims to introduce the students into the archaeology and culture of the Bay of Naples in general, more specifically of the archaeological sites affected by the famous eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. The region was ruled by the Romans at that time but closer look reveals its more complicated cultural origins composed by the Greek, Etruscan Roman and other ethnics elements.

The unique evidence of everyday life of the cities like Pompeii and Herculaneum or seaside resorts with opulent elite class villas stuffed with pieces of art and luxury in Stabiae, Oplontis, Baiae etc. together with agricultural structures of the countryside, town workshops, ports or brothels form our modern understanding of the period.

The course is intended for general humanities students. No previous archaeological, historical or art historical experience is needed.


Besides the classes individual consultations on specialized topics are possible. For the list of the academic staff of ICAR, their specialization and the possible language of communication see the following list. The mother language of all of the staff is either Czech or Slovak.
