A vivid and deeply interesting read. . . . It's visual, yet rich in content, and I'd recommend it to anyone with even a pinch of interest in Herculaneum or open-air heritage sites for that matter. --Jenny Mathiasson The C Word Podcast Superb. -- The Herculaneum Society This beautifully presented book by Court and Rainer illustrates the cultural value of the ancient town of Herculaneum while at the same time shining a light on the challenges and triumphs of the archaeologists and conservators who work to preserve it. --Dr. Joanne Berry, Associate Professor, Department of Classics, Ancient History & Egyptology, Swansea University
