After a devastating volcano destroyed it in 79 A.D., the Roman city of Pompeii disappeared for almost 1,700 years. When it was finally unearthed in 1748, it was discovered that this port settlement remained intact, giving us a view of ancient life frozen in time. This addition to Penguin's What Was... series introduces this fascinating story to twenty-first century children. A trade paperback and NOOK Book original; readers 8 to twelve.
