Preserved by the catastrophic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, many of Pompeiis temples, homes, public spaces, and artistic treasures remain intact, providing us with a remarkable inheritance of a long-gone era. This insightful volume—complete with photographs, three-dimensional reconstructions, drawings, and meticulously plotted maps and floor plans—is essential for anyone intending to visit, or simply want to learn more about the city. Presented in a beautiful hardback, this tome provides a wealth of information on Pompeiis archaeological sites, cultural universe, and everyday life.
