9788854400306: Pompeii: The History, Art and Life of the Buried City (Timeless Treasures S.)

The study of Pompeii opens a window on the ancient world. The discovery of the city and its surrounding area that were destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD represented a decisive moment for our understanding of the Roman world. The excavations around Vesuvius have given us an image of an intact ancient life that has not been damaged by the passing of the years. Extraordinary from an archaeological standpoint, a visit to Pompeii is like a trip through time. Its paved streets, monumental forum, well designed houses, organized and welcoming shops, crafts' workshops, surprising paintings and mosaics provide us with a snapshot of a past life. The purpose of this book is to show the reader what Pompeii represents to archaeology and scientific studies, to explain the complex and fascinating Roman world, and to provide a tour of an extraordinary site where history seems more alive than anywhere else.
