Abstract On the morning of August 24 in the year 79, time came to an abrupt halt for the people of Pompeii. This outstanding program - filmed under the guidance of Umberto Pappalardo, director of the excavations at Pompeii and Herculaneum - uses Pompeii's abundant archaeological evidence to re-create daily life at the time Mt. Vesuvius erupted. A historical overview of the town, combined with background on Pompeii's urban, political, and cultural organization, completes the portrait of a thriving Roman community in the 1st century.
