The Lost World of Pompeii - History in Review

July 11, 2007, Greencastle, Ind. - Pedar W. Foss, associate professor of classical studies at DePauw University, is co-editor of The World of Pompeii. Just published by Routledge, the book contains 39 chapters contributed by 40 international scholars, 234 illustrations and 4 maps, and a CD-ROM with detailed digital versions of the plans of Pompeii, Herculaneum and the map of the Bay of Naples, in multiple formats and at multiple resolutions.

Professor Gary Devore of Stanford University and the Pompeii Archaeological Research Project: Porta Stabiana declares, "Finally! This is the invaluable resource every Roman archaeologist has been waiting for. In The World of Pompeii, Dobbins and Foss have illustrated not only the tremendous fertility of the material record at these eminent Campanian sites, but also the central role these complex ruins play in our understanding of the entire Roman world."
