My nerdy history interest in England has continued for many years alongside an abiding fascination with Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome. One of my latest purchases is Mary Beard’s SPQR. In the world of fictional detectives, I’ve been a devoted follower of Lindsey Davis’s Falco series.
So of course Pompeii fascinates me. There are much longer programs on the subject, including this one hosted by Mary Beard.
But I found this short video animation rather haunting.
You can read more of Mary Beard on the subject of Pompeii here.
