Signs of life are everywhere in the Roman city of Pompeii. Graffiti decorates the walls. Ancient homes and restaurants still stand. Colorful frescoes and mosaics are still visible. But this city is a graveyard. More than 2,000 years ago, Mount Vesuvius rained fire and ash onto the city. Many who died there were perfectly preserved in ash, only to be discovered centuries later. This high-interest title uses maps, graphs, and profiles of important discoveries to explore the fascinating history of the doomed city of Pompeii.
