Resurrecting Pompeii provides an in-depth study of a unique site
from antiquity with information about a population who all died
from the same known cause within a short period of time. Pompeii
has been continuously excavated and studied since 1748. Early
scholars working in Pompeii and other sites associated with the AD
79 eruption of Mount Vesuvius were seduced by the wealth of
artefacts and wall paintings yielded by the site. This meant that
the less visually attractive evidence, such as human skeletal
remains, were largely ignored. Recognizing the important
contribution of the human skeletal evidence to the archaeology of
Pompeii, Resurrecting Pompeii remedies that misdemeanour, and
provides students of archaeology and history with an essential
resource in the study of this fascinating historical event.
