Giuseppe Fiorelli

Italian archaeologist (1823 - 1896). He was born in Naples, South West Italy. His excavations at Pompeii helped preserve the city. Fiorelli's initial work at Pompeii was completed in 1848. Then, when he became professor of archaeology at Naple University and director of excavations (1860–75), he established the meticulous method of studying archaeological sites layer by layer. He founded a training school where foreigners as well as Italians could learn archaeological technique, and made a particular study of the materials and building methods used in Pompeii. Director of the Naples National Archaeological Museum from 1863, he was director general of Italian Antiquities and Fine Arts (1875–96).
