    Pompeii is an archaeological site of world fame. I am pretty sure that in many countries it is an important element of the school curriculum. Despite its high historical value I appreciate it of somehow different reasons. The buried city is a unique site where you can admire social life with all its complexities. I have always had an impression that history taught in school is fragmented. The 79 CE eruption of Italys Mount Vesuvius buried the nearby town of Pompeii in ash and rock, simultaneously destroying and preserving the city and its residents. This book takes readers back to that fateful moment, laying out the timeline of the Pompeii tragedy and examining the human and scientific aspects of the event. It also discusses the all-too-real risk of a similar eruption occurring.
