Ancient Voices (History Today)Alan Hill, via The Good Book Stall
If you ask me where is the most memorable place I have visited, I will reply “Pompeii”. It is extraordinary to walk along a Roman street, as it was in the 1st century AD and see the shops, homes and civic buildings, and sobering to realise that the city was the graveyard for over 2,000 people.
In this book Ann Sloane gives us the history and a guidebook to this remarkable place. Beginning with background information about the Roman Empire, she goes on to describe the volcanic eruption of 79 AD and the subsequent rediscovery and excavation of the city. Finally there is a chapter outlining spiritual lessons we can learn from the tragic events drawing a parallel with Sodom and Gomorrah.
It would have been good if the book had contained information about the location of the various sites, visiting hours and car parking, but this is a minor quibble. Overall this is a book that will educate, enlighten and encourage you visit one of the wonders of the world.
