Product description

Review

'Closely written, lavishly illustrated and aptly titled ... from the moment you open the book you are assailed with images of this doomed city ... Now, for an authentic taste of life in Pompeii you don't need to fly to Italy and visit the site. Just read this book' - Minerva 'Highly readable and lavishly illustrated ... a boon for archaeology buffs' - Publishers Weekly 'A triumph, a must for everyone interested in the most famous site of the ancient world. Beautifully written and magnificently illustrated, packed with fascinating information ... Berry talks about Pompeii's people, history, religion, society, art, culture and economic activity with a unique vividness, depth and breadth' - Sunday Telegraph 'Dazzling . . . an excellent companion' - The New York Times
