Description
 
Shelley Tanaka (au); Greg Ruhl (il); Peter Christopher (ph). On Aug. 24, A.D. 79, a column of fiery ash & pumice shot into the air from the top of Mt. Vesuvius in Italy. By the next day, the nearby Roman city of Pompeii was buried. More than 1,800 years later archaeologists excavated one of the cityís most luxurious houses. Inside were the skeletons of two people: a steward with a leather purse & a seal that said his name was Eros & that he worked for one of the most important families in Pompeii; & a young girl with a bronze ring. This is their story. With fascinating text & splendid color photos & accurate illus., this book recreates the lost world of this buried Roman city & describes how Eros might have lived & how he came to die in his masterís house. Also describes the ongoing scientific study of Pompeii.
