Professor Steven Ellis has been directing the Pompeii Archaeological Research Project: Porta Stabia since 2005. This excavation reveals archaeological evidence of sub-elite neighborhoods with the goal of understanding the relationship between households of different economic status to determine the role of sub-elites in shaping urban networks. This research also includes the study of Pompeian urban infrastructure and especially waste management.
