Assistants and master students

Each year, the project takes on a limited number of students in Classical archaeology and ancient history (60 p required, papers presented on Pompeii-subjects is qualifying) as trainees. Assistants are students educated within the project. These members participate on the base of a smaller fee, sufficient for covering the basic expenses during the stay in Pompeii.
