An extended look at what is known about Pompeii and its people from a scholar with extensive knowledge of the city, and first-hand experience excavating sites in the region. Interesting from start to finish, with occasional touches of self-deprecating humor, I especially appreciated the small but amusing blooper (instantly corrected) that the professor let stand in the closing minutes of the final episode. It takes courage and a little humility to let the rest of us see that even scholars are human. Thanks!
