This book, written for a general readership provides a comprehensive account of the discovery and excavation of Herculaneum.  There is treatment of the remarkable preservation of organic material, the scientific study of the skeletons of  over 300 persons who did not escape, and the decipherment of the inscriptions, graffiti and waxed wooden tablets that have been recovered from the ruins of the town. The archaeological material is pieced together to present a vivid account of life as it was lived in Pompeii’s sister town.
