Herculaneum - Italy's Buried Treasure

Author: Joseph Jay Deiss   
Stars: 4
Review by: MApgar

Slightly out of date with recent work, and lacking in color, it is still a good account of the events concerning excavation of Pompeii's sister site. That it is rather good at; but it is a bit lacking in describing the eruption itself - an event that lasts a few pages, they could've spent more time on it and gone into better detail. The precise geology of it isn't quite correct which brings things down a tad.
