Synopsis

The ruins of Pompeii destroyed by Vesuvius in AD 79 offer the best evidence we have of life in the Roman empire. Mary Beard's notes rise to the challenge of making sense of its remains. What kind of town was it? What can it tell us about life then - from sex to politics, food to religion, slavery to literacy?
