Description

The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79 and the sudden burial of Pompeii and Herculaneum created a unique opportunity for archaeologists and historians to study an ancient city and its inhabitants. This unit will explore how the material record of these cities can be used to reconstruct the lives of ancient Romans, collectively and individually. A broader context will be provided by other sites in the important region of Campania, especially the smaller, rural settlements buried by the volcano.
