Herculaneum: Italy's Buried Treasure

Joseph Jay Deiss

A vivid portrayal of life in Pompeii's sister city, Herculaneum includes a description of the ancient Villa dei Papiri, on which the Getty Villa in Malibu is modeled.

"A fascinating book. The daily life of the Romans, rich and poor, has been wonderfully re-created."
