1983 Jashemski excavations

 

According to Wilhelmina, in 1982 following Stanley’s death, she once again worked at Boscoreale, although no photograph’s dated 1982 have been included.

She said they had prepared a considerable area for her. The portion of the vineyard they had excavated the previous year had been replanted.

That year the area to the rear and to the east of the villa were excavated.

 

“During the 1983 season, they continued to work towards the front of the villa.

A row of huge trees bordered the public road on the side adjacent to the villa continuing across the roadway leading from the villa to the public road.

The root cavities of these trees were very large and quite different from the trees found in the vineyard.

Two umbrella pines (Pinus pinea) were identified, and the two other large trees were definitely deciduous but the root material was too damaged for a positive identification.

Both the shape and size of the root cavity suggest that these trees were probably plane trees (Platanus orientalis).

A survey of this site at the end of the 1983 season showed that most of the land surrounding the villa had been planted as a vineyard.

At the end of the three season, a total of approximately 250 vine root cavities and 120 stake cavities had been found.

There were 34 trees. Most of the trees were in the vineyard.”

According to Wilhelmina:
“One day in late June a severe thunderstorm began before lunch and continued for several hours. While sheltering in the villa building, it was evident why the roadway from the entrance sloped downwards, otherwise the water would have poured through the front door of the villa where we were taking shelter. We were very concerned about the rainstorm, as we had just found the most interesting soil contours which could have been destroyed by the rain. We had found a small vegetable garden with a cistern in the middle to provide the necessary water. The garden was laid out in small beds, separated by irrigation channels which also served as paths.”
