Description: 2000 years ago, Mount Vesuvius erupted burying the town of Pompeii beneath layers of ash and pumice. Much of the town had been preserved by the volcanic eruption, giving us a fascinating insight into Roman life. Peter Connolly brings every detail of Pompeii vividly to life with his intricate artwork, text and photographs from the site.
Synopsis: The violent eruption of Mount Vesuvius on 24 August AD 79 was one of the greatest natural disasters of all time. Thousands of people were suddenly entombed in the town of Pompeii, taken by surprise as a layer of ash and pumice, many metres thick, rained down on top of them from the long-dormant volcano. Uncovered nearly 2000 years later, Pompeii gives us an amazing record of everyday Roman life. In this fascinating book, Peter Connolly recreates in his artwork and text every detail of the lives of the people of Pompeii. Their houses, shops, baths, theatres and more are brought vividly to life.
