Pompeii: The Day a City Died (New Horizons)

by Caroline Palmer (Author), RobertEtienne (Author)


On 24 August, AD 79 Vesuvius, the terrifying volcano, unleashed its fury. Pompeii's bustling life was buried beneath three metres of ash, its inhabitants crushed to the ground - vivid images frozen beneath a volcanic shroud.

As we step back in time, tracing the rediscovery of the buried city and exploring all the fascinating details of daily life in the ancient world, the miracle of Pompeii - destroyed in an instant yet preserved for centuries - comes back to us.
