Most of the excavation of this block of houses (Region I, Insula 9) was completed in 1951-1952. This site showcases some aspects of the British School at Rome's Insula I.9 project, including 360-degree interactive panoramas and objects, 3D modelling, reconstructions and artwork.
The project was undertaken between 1995 and 2009 in collaboration with the Soprintendenza Archaeologica di Pompei under Professor Pier Giovanni Guzzo, and subsequently with its successors, most recently the Parco Archeologico di Pompei under the direction of Professor Massimo Osanna. Financial support was received from the European Union under the Horizon 2000 programme, The British Academy, the British School at Rome and Enterprise Oil Plc.
