Pompeii: an introduction
Mary Beard and best-selling author Robert Harris discuss the enduring appeal of the story of Pompeii.
Their books have provided powerful introductions to both the site and to life in the Roman Empire and in this conversation they discuss the special hold on our imagination still claimed by this ancient town and the people that once lived there.
This event took place on 26 April 2013.
