A very interesting book with plenty of pictures. Too heavy to take on holiday with me but very interesting to read before visiting Herculaneum and again on return.

Combines deep erudition with elegant prose and beautiful photography. Of great appeal to the academic and general reader. A fantastic book.

A very high quality tome, brimming with colour photographs of this fascinating site, many full page. Includes fold out panaramas, maps and archival photographs. For anyone who has seen documentaries on Pompeii, the author will be familiar. The text is comprehensive, informative and highly readable - neither overly academic nor simplistic. A beautiful book that would look great on a coffee table, but to call it a coffee table book does not do it justice.

Brilliant book, but don't buy it as a guidebook - it's massive!

We bought this book as a gift and the person recieving it was over the moon as he is visiting the site later this year.
It is a nice book with some realy nice photographs including some double page pull out's and detailed plans and explanations. however the thing that surprised us the most was it's actual size and wieght, it was probably 30cm x 30cm. however a lovely book
