Published in stunning colour, A Day
in Pompeii depicts the daily life of one
of the worlds most extraordinary cities,
Pompeii. On August 24, A.D. 79, the
Roman city of Pompeii was buried by
the catastrophic eruption of Mount
Vesuvius. The very debris and ash that
so suddenly and violently ended life in
Pompeii also encased the city in a virtual
time capsule. As a result, Pompeii is today
one of the most complete and intact
archaeological sites in the world.A Day
in Pompeii takes us back in time to
experience life and death in a cosmopolitan
city. Featuring exceptional objects that
laid buried in Pompeiis ruins for over
17 centuries, including room size frescoes,
marble and bronze sculptures, jewellery,
gold coins and everyday household items,
evoking the richness and culture of daily
life in the Roman Empires favourite vacation
resort. The most poignant and dramatic are
the body casts of the volcanos victims,
frozen in their last moments-a couple in
their final embrace, a man clutching a
cloth to his mouth, a fleeing slave with
his ankle manacle still in place and a dog
struggling on its chain.
