Herculaneum: A Sourcebook (Paperback)

Author: Brain Brennan

Publisher: Ancient History Seminars 2012

Pages: 150

Description: Herculaneum, a small Roman town on the Bay of Naples, was destroyed in AD 79 by the same catastrophic eruption of Vesuvius that buried Pompeii. Sealed deep under a layer of hardened volcanic sludge the town is still only partially excavated. Yet it is one of the most evocative of Roman sites. Each year thousands of visitors walk the silent streets of the town and explore the reconstructed houses, shops and public buildings of this open-air museum of Roman life.
