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.
