5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Pompeii, 12 Jun 2013

This review is from: The Complete Pompeii (Paperback)
Fantastic book whether used as a pre-trip primer or whether for reading at home. The depiction of all the artifacts, the insight into how the site was excavated with the methods changing as people became more informed. I really enjoyed this book from cover to cover.

This review is from: The Complete Pompeii (Paperback)
A must read for all who are interested in this most fascinating historical site. Well written and amply illustrated, this book covers all you need to know about Pompeii. If you have visited Pompeii, use it as an aide-memoire, if you can't get - then this is an excellent substitute. If you are heading to Pompeii, use it as the ultimate guide.

This book covers the history of Pompeii, its preservation, its people, religion, art, culture and society. Joanne Berry brings clarity and conveys her feelings for this ancient archeological site. Her work is highly readable and fascinating.

The paperback edition of this book is published to coincide with the major exhibition at the British Museum, which opens on 28 March.

This review is from: The Complete Pompeii (Paperback)
Bought this book as recommended reading for a course on Pompeii.
The course starts in September so can not comment on how good it is as a recommended book, however
as a book on Pompeii it is interesting, well written and informative.

would recommend this book to anyone interested in Pompeii.
