The rediscovery of Pompeii in 1748 represented a decisive moment for our understanding of the Roman world.
To visit the site on these pagesis to travel through time: here is the excitement and drama Pompeii represents for archaeology and Classical studies, a complete tour of the complex and fascinating first-century Roman city.
White Star's partners for Pompeii: Art and Treasures of the Buried City are the official institutions charged with preservation and the continuing exploration of the site: the Archaeological Superintendencies of Pompeii and Naples, and the Università Federico II of Naples.
This book is the first collaboration of these two expert staffs and each offers a special authority on the excavations and the art of the ancient city.
The text documents the most recent investigations and discoveries from the field-some previously unpublished-and represents the most current available view of one of the world's most famous archaeological sites..
