Pompeii: Lost and Found
by Mary Pope Osborne

Pompeii was a thriving, modern city in the early Roman Empire of 79 A.D. If you had been wealthy, you might even have chosen it for your vacation spot. You could lounge around in a fancy bath house with swimming pools, bowling alleys, and toilets with real running water! You could go to the theater! You could play marbles with kids in the streets! You could even play with your dog down their cobblestone streets.

But, you would not have wanted to be in Pompeii when Mt. Vesuvius roared to life. This once dormant volcano exploded in a violent rage and caught the people by surprise. How can we know what happened over 2000 years ago? What evidence has been found by archaeologists?

Pompeii: Lost and Found by Mary Pope Osborne will give you a look at what happened the day Pompeii felt the wrath of Mt. Vesuvius and what happened almost 2000 years later when scientists began putting the pieces of Pompeii back together.
