Pompeii: history, life & afterlife
Roger Ling describes the day-to-day life of Pompeii's inhabitants on the eve of the fatal eruption in AD 79, as well as the eruption itself and its aftermath. The city was rediscovered in the late 16th century, and since then archaeologists have discovered more and more of the city’s past. The author concludes with an assessment of the conflicting demands of conservation and public access.

Readable account of the history of Pompeii. The history of the city forms the larger part of the book and spans from the beginnings to A.D. 79, with details on the changes that might have resulted from the town being made a colonia of Rome. The history of the excavations forms a small, but well summarised section at the rear, while the chapter on life in the city on the eve of the eruption is again well summarised. Bibliography is good and the text is noted throughout. It is well illustrated and easy to read.
