Synopsis:

Using the latest scientific research, this multi-disciplinary journey explores everything from painting styles to local history, botany and architecture. It investigates public life, religious life, the economy, and the private arena. A special section is devoted to the eruption of 79 AD, described based on the most recent discoveries, and another section takes a look at Oplontis, the most celebrated villa in the suburbs of Pompeii - and legendarily owned by Poppea Sabina, Nero's second wife. An updated bibliography and a chronological outline conclude this journey back in time.This book was done with the collaboration of the Archaeological Superintendency of Pompeii and the Superintendency for Archaeological Heritage of Naples and Caserta.
