Description

The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79 meant death for most of the Roman citizens living in Pompeii.

It tells of Tranio, an actor's son, and his friend Livia, the baker's daughter, who witness one of the most terrifying moments in recorded history - the destruction of their beloved city
