9780892369416: Secrets of Pompeii: Everyday Life in Ancient Rome

The remains of the ancient city of Pompeii, frozen in time following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in a.d. 79, have provided invaluable evidence of daily life, not only in Rome’s provinces, but in its larger urban centers as well.

This book provides a fascinating look at how ancient Romans interacted in their public squares and marketplaces, how they worshipped, decorated their homes, and spent their leisure time—at the theater, in the gymnasium, and in the baths and brothels. Illustrated with photographs of architectural remains and exquisite details from a range of ancient artworks, including wall paintings, sculptures, mosaics, and carved reliefs, the book offers a glimpse into a lost world.
