    Pompeii is the best known and probably the most important archaeological site in the world. This book, now available in paperback, is the most up-to-date and complete account for the general reader of Pompeii's rise, splendour and fall. This title coincides with the major exhibition at the British Museum from 28th March - 29th Sept 2013.

    The drama of Pompeii's end has been handed down by Roman writers, its paintings and mosaics have astonished visitors since their discovery and its houses and public buildings still present a vivid picture of life, disaster and death in a Roman town. This book includes a comprehensive account of the rise and fall of Pompeii.


    Joanne Berry teaches ancient history and archaeology at Swansea University. She is the author of The Complete Pompeii and co-author of The Lives of the Romans, both published by Thames & Hudson.
