Resurrecting Pompeii


Description

Resurrecting Pompeii provides an in-depth study of a unique site from antiquity with information about a population who all died from the same known cause within a short period of time. Pompeii has been continuously excavated and studied since 1748. Early scholars working in Pompeii and other sites associated with the AD 79 eruption of Mount Vesuvius were seduced by the wealth of artefacts and wall paintings yielded by the site. This meant that the less visually attractive evidence, such as human skeletal remains, were largely ignored. Recognizing the important contribution of the human skeletal evidence to the archaeology of Pompeii, Resurrecting Pompeii remedies that misdemeanour, and provides students of archaeology and history with an essential resource in the study of this fascinating historical event.

Something odd is happening after dark in Britain's schools...Ofsted, the schools' Inspectorate, are deeply worried. To lose one inspector in the line of duty might be considered a misfortune, but to have four inspectors lured into school after hours, dispatched, and left in outlandish poses before a cryptic message scrawled on the blackboard - that just looks like carelessness. Helen Haversham, Year 1 teacher at Hornby Infants School, is also worried. Both Ofsted and Christmas are coming. Her displays are up, her paperwork is done, and she has read the Head's memo explicitly forbidding ritual homicide, and yet something doesn't seem quite right...Who has been making midnight visits to the school? What has so unhinged the leader of the Ofsted team? How can she stop the class guinea pig from going on another dirty protest? If Helen can't answer these questions by Friday story time, then Resurrecting Pompeii download epub the school's end of term carol concert and Nativity is going to come to a truly unforgettable climax...
