Pompeii digital magazine. While excavation is in progress, information is already going online

When excavations began in Pompeii in 1748, it was forbidden to take notes and make drawings without special authorisation from the king of Naples. Today, the Archaeological Park of Pompeii, an institute with scientific and managerial autonomy under the Italian Ministry of Culture, publishes scientific data from new excavations and research online in a new digital journal, the ‘E-Journal degli Scavi di Pompei’, often while field work is still in progress. A choice of “radical transparency”, as the director of the UNESCO site, Gabriel Zuchtriegel, labelled the project, which was launched last May. Now the first nine articles, published during the year 2023 on important discoveries via the Archaeological Park's website (pompeiisites.org/e-journal-of-the-pompeii-excavations/) have been collated in a single volume - also in digital format.    …Read more
