Providing students with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to investigate, reconstruct and conserve the past, Cities of Vesuvius: Pompeii and Herculaneum Third Edition has been revised and updated to provide even greater support for the core topic of the NSW Year 12 Ancient History syllabus.

It also comprehensively explores the social life, economy, politics, religion, architecture and entertainment in the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, as well as the influence of Greece and Hellenistic culture.
