A compelling and updated new edition of this popular text to provide even greater support for HSC Ancient History.

Cities of Vesuvius: Pompeii and Herculaneum Second Edition has been revised and updated to provide even greater support for the core topic of the NSW HSC Ancient History syllabus. Compelling primary sources, exam-style questions and up-to-date information on recent archaeological techniques, technologies, projects and findings are combined in an engaging full-colour layout to provide every student with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed at HSC.

* The extensive focus on primary sources encourages students to assess, understand, analyse and interpret historical data as they develop the skills required to think like an historian.
* Source-based questions further develop these skills and reflect the structure and style of the HSC exam.
* Other in-chapter tasks and questions provide opportunities for students to immediately apply their knowledge or provoke discussion and further research.
* Current information on the methods, interpretations and ethical issues of modern archaeology, including a final chapter on what is happening now in Pompeii, ensures students are engaging with the most current material available.
