More Description



Pompeii is not quite a time capsule, a frozen moment in history, but it is probably the closest we will ever get to one. This up-to-date new survey draws on evidence produced at the cutting edge of modern archaeological research, revealing how the evidence for life in this city was first uncovered, and how archaeologists over the centuries have unpeeled the layers that enable us to reconstruct Pompeii's history.

With its lavish illustrations, covering monumental architecture and inscriptions, shops, graffiti, wall-paintings, and mosaics, plus its numerous box features ranging from theatrical entertainments to water supply, The Complete Pompeii is the ultimate resource and inspirational guide to this iconic ancient town.

Among the many topics covered:

  • How Pompeii was destroyed in the eruption of AD 79
  • What we know of the lives and deaths of its inhabitants
  • What the houses tell us about the people who lived in them
  • Who was involved in politics
  • What can be reconstructed about religious practices
