description

Pompeii and Herculaneum is all about - as you might've guessed - Pompeii and Herculaneum. But there's a lot more to these two ancient cities than being victims of that massive volcanic eruption in 79AD. Prepared by Gersha Shteyman and Tess Gordon, this module will cover topics including the lives, social structure, economy of Pompeii and Herculaneum pre-eruption, the eruption itself, and centuries worth of archaeological digs. Students will gain a deeper understanding on the validity and reliability of sources, how these sources form most of what we know about these two ancient cities, and how archaeological digs went from Indiana Jones-esque treasure hunts to an actual profession.
