Synopsis

Solving the Mysteries of Pompeii by Charlie Samuel

Pompeii is one of the world's most famous sites where ancient history can still be explored today. The devastation of the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, when mount Vesuvius erupted, has puzzled and fascinated archaeologists and historians for hundreds of years. The way the city was preserved, buried deep under the volcanic ash has revealed amazing clues about what life was like in a city during the period of the Roman Empire. Solving the Mysteries of Pompeii explores these amazing ruins and looks in detail at the artefacts, architecture and remains of people and animals who lived there. It also explains how some of the archaeological discoveries were uncovered, which have helped to piece together our understanding of this fascinating place.
