On August 24, 79 AD, Mount Vesuvius erupted, burying the twin Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum under a shroud of volcanic debris. Undisturbed for more than 1,600 years, their eventual discovery and excavation amazed the world. In Pompeii: The Last Day, archaeologist Paul Wilkinson uses all the available evidence to piece together exactly what happened on that fateful day and to paint a vivid picture of what 1st-century Roman provincial life would have been like. The book also includes a one-day tour of Pompeii, complete with street maps and a full itinerary. A unique glimpse of a devastating moment in history. Dr. Paul Wilkinson, an archaeologist specializing in Roman studies, heads the Kent Archaeological Field School. He is a regular contributor to BBC HISTORY MAGAZINE, HISTORY TODAY, and THE SUNDAY TIMES; he is also the editor of PRACTICAL ARCHAEOLOGY.
