About this title


Recounts the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which, in 69 A.D., buried the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum under volcanic ash; describes what daily life was like in the ancient Roman city; and discusses the excavation of the archaeological site.

From Library Journal:

Mt. Vesuvius erupted so suddenly and with such devastation on August 25, C.E. 79, that the city of Pompeii came to a complete halt. Life stopped, with people reduced to ash where they stood. Archaeologists centuries later were able to reconstruct the city's people and structure by uncovering the buried layers. Houses were found with tables set for meals, utensils in the cooking areas, jewelry and cosmetics in dressing rooms. Restaurants, stores, gathering places were just as they were when buried by the lava and fire. This audio production, with its many voices, sound effects, and music, re-creates Pompeii, with dramatic reconstructions of daily life before and after the catastrophe. Scenes and conversations are realistic and immediate, though at 90 minutes, the program offers merely a brief overview. For libraries with students involved in elementary research on lost civilizations. Suitable for young adults.?Barbara Valle, El Paso P.L., TX
