Summary
The story of Pompeii; the life of its people, its conflicts and disasters, and the changing fortunes of a house at the center of it all. This is the story of the growth and destruction of a house, a city, and an empire and a tale of discovery and revelation that tracks the extraordinary archaeological work involved in unearthing and interpreting Pompeii's remains.--B.I.P
