My Story: Pompeii
It’s August AD 78, and Claudia is at the Forum in the great city of Pompeii. It’s a day of strange encounters and even odder portents. When the ground shakes, Claudia is convinced it is a bad omen. What does it all mean? And why is she so disturbed by Vesuvius, the great volcano that looms over the city? A gripping story-diary that brings to life one of the greatest cities of the Roman empire – and the terror of one of history’s most cataclysmic disasters, which is still notorious today.
