The Last Days of Pompeii – E1 Sneak Peek

2000 years ago, the entire Roman city of Pompeii was buried alive in a huge volcanic eruption. Pompeii’s Final Hours: New Evidence is the three part documentary series which presents a countdown through the final days of life in Pompeii and how new archaeological digs and technologies are revealing previously unknown secrets about the people hidden beneath the ash. Historian Dr Bettany Hughes (Genius of the Modern World, Britain’s Secret History), Archaeologist Raksha Dave (Time Team) and John Sergeant (Britain’s Secret Treasures) explore what life was like in the final hours of the doomed city of Pompeii – counting down day-by-day to the eruption itself.
