Excellent presentation that included the history of the explorations, but more importantly focused on the intriguing finds, differences between Herculaneum and Pompeii, latest research, and how the science is continuing to enhance our understanding of Roman life. The artifacts and art presented, including comparisons to modern art and life, were informative and interesting, Fiorella Squillante was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Herculaneum--and other smaller sites like Baia--are certainly on my list of must sees.
This was the bast Context conversation I have seen so far. It was the right mix of overview and detail. A lot of information was packed in the time, but it never felt overwhelming. I wish I had seen it before going to Herculaneum years ago.
This is the second conversation we have done with Fiorella and will definitely be searching further Context conversation offerings for her name. She is excellent.
My husband and I have had the opportunity of going to Herculaneum and found it fascinating. Fiorella’s presentation of the site was very comprehensive and the photography was top notch. We forwarded some questions in advance regarding new technques that are being used to anayze the papyrus scrolls that were carbonized, and asked that this be addressed in the presentation, which she did. We appreciated her willingness to do this, and the infomation she provided.
That’s another great thing about this presenter. She really cares that you have a quality experience. After the Naples presentation I got an email from her addressing a question I had asked in the chat, and she also sent participants additional resources after the conversation. You get more than your money’s worth from her presentations.
Looking forward to doing a live tour with her sometime.
Fiorella is so knowledgeable and engaging on this topic. She also showed a smart sense of humor that was quite funny and on point. We have visited Herculaneum, but learned a lot of new information from Fiorella's seminar. She's a great virtual tour guide when you can't be there in person.
Excellent presentation. Very good coverage of the archaeological, historial as well as modern aspects of the city of Herculaneum.
