The Via Consolare Project in Pompeii
Research Areas of the Via Consolare Project
(Plan: Soprintendenza Archeologica di Pompei)
Welcome to the Via Consolare Project and
San Francisco State Pompeii Archaeological Internship Programme
The Via Consolare Project has worked since 2005 to document and explain the chronology and stratigraphic record of the properties along the length of the via Consolare, a major roadway on the western side of ancient Pompeii. We focus on two specific areas of the city: the environs of the Villa delle Colonne a mosaico, a large villa just outside the city wall and legally-defined pomerium and Insula VII 6, a city block very close to the forum in the heart of the city. Situated on either end of the via Consolare, these two areas bookend the street from which the Project derives its name. We seek answers to some of the longest held questions about the history and course of development of the city, its urban layout, and the character of its suburban and urban environments from its earliest foundations until its destruction in AD 79.
