Vander Poel (Halsted) Campanian collection
Series III. Vander Poel excavations at Pompeii, 1958-1982, undated, bulk, 1960-1965 25.7 linear feet, 26 flat file folders, 4 rolls
From 1960 to 1963 Vander Poel led a team conducting a series of excavations at Pompeii, focusing on the Casa di Meleagro. This series contains all the material relating those excavations.
Vander Poel's Pompeii excavations had two objectives. The first was to reexcavate and clarify issues relating to the Casa di Meleagro, which was first excavated in 1829. The second, simultaneous project involved searching for early levels throughout Pompeii.
Vander Poel's Casa di Meleagro project arose from Tatiana Warscher's interest in the house. She had studied the structure closely from 1956 to 1959 and Vander Poel's excavations were designed to continue her investigations. From 1960 to 1963, Vander Poel spent three complete and one very limited excavation seasons cleaning and reexcavating major portions of the Casa di Meleagro, as well as its neighboring structures, the Casa del Duca d'Aumale and the Casa del Centauro. In the course of this project, he worked on revising the plan and the transverse section of the house, traced and analyzed the cisterns and water systems of the house and discovered a previously unknown subterranean room. Vander Poel also studied the decorative program of the house, analyzing the frescoes and mosaic floorings and commissioning graphic reconstructions of the painted decoration in almost all the rooms.
At the same time, along with the work in the Casa di Meleagro and its neighbors, Vander Poel pursued a second project at Pompeii, searching for earlier habitation levels at the site, that is, those from before the eruption in A. D. 79. His team dug circa 250 soundings throughout the site to a depth of just over two meters and documented earlier occupation levels.
