Buried City of Pompeii


The 79 CE eruption of Italy's Mount Vesuvius buried the nearby town of Pompeii in ash and rock, simultaneously destroying and preserving the city and its residents. This book takes readers back to that fateful moment, laying out the timeline of the Pompeii tragedy and examining the human and scientific aspects of the event. It also discusses the all-too-real risk of a similar eruption occurring in the future.
