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, authoritative and comprehensive account for the general reader of its rise, splendour and fall.

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.

Industry Reviews

'Dazzling . . . an excellent companion' - The New York Times
'A triumph, a must for everyone interested in the most famous site of the ancient world. Beautifully written and magnificently illustrated, packed with fascinating information ... Berry talks about Pompeii's people, history, religion, society, art, culture and economic activity with a unique vividness, depth and breadth' - Sunday Telegraph
'Highly readable and lavishly illustrated ... a boon for archaeology buffs' - Publishers Weekly
'Closely written, lavishly illustrated and aptly titled ... from the moment you open the book you are assailed with images of this doomed city ... Now, for an authentic taste of life in Pompeii you don't need to fly to Italy and visit the site. Just read this book' - Minerva
