Preserved by the catastrophic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, many of Pompeii's 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 the city. Now available in a new, smaller trim size, it presents a wealth of information on Pompeii's archaeological sites, cultural universe, and everyday life.
