Ferdinando De Simone: The Other Side of Vesuvius: Studying the Ancients Who Survived
Girolamo Ferdinando De Simone is an archaeologist who is a driving force andintellect behind an ongoing dig, not at Pompeii, but on the opposite, north slope of Vesuvius, which haspractically been forgotten or at least neglected. De Simone’s research andscholarship focus on an area that apparently survived the really big explosion ofAD 79 but which scarcely remained unscathed in subsequent centuries.—Original airdate: 5/11/2016
