Last Supper in Pompeii, Paperback / softback Book

Last Supper in Pompeii Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Last Supper in Pompeii looks at the traditions of Roman dining - including its political and religious role, and the ever-present link between feasting and death.

Pompeii has always been one of our most valuable sources of information because of the sudden preservation in the midst of life.

The catalogue covers where the Romans got their ideas from; the influence of Etruscans and Italics (who had themselves been influenced by the Greeks); the production and distribution of food around Pompeii; a look at the role of food and feasting in the Roman house; the arrival of the Romans in Britain, and the impact on dining there.
