Last Days of Pompeii

Post by Scott »
Secrets of the Dead | Last Days of Pompeii | Season 20 | Episode 2 | PBS 55min.

Lots of scanning (Leica) images and setups in this entertaining up-to-date episode.

"An ornate ceremonial chariot was recently discovered in the ruins of Pompeii, offering insights into the lives of wealthy, high-ranking landowners who lived outside the city. Buried by the Vesuvius eruption 2,000 years ago, this is not a humble transport cart. “It's the Lamborghini of this ancient world,” says Eric Poehler, an expert on ancient infrastructure in Pompeii."
