About this product
- DescriptionDestroyed yet paradoxically preserved by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in a.d. 79, Pompeii and other nearby sites are usually considered places where we can most directly experience the daily lives of ancient Romans. This book explores Pompeii as a modern obsession, in which the Vesuvian sites function as mirrors of the present.
