3 Credit Lecture

This course uncovers the urban fabric of Pompeii: how it was laid out, public and private buildings and their decoration, and the wider cultural, geographical and historical contexts. Using physical remains alongside texts in translation, we explore different aspects of the lives of the inhabitants, together with the enduring power of the city to dominate our modern view of the Roman world.
