Lots of pictures, and a good chunk on life in Pompeii and ancient Rome in general. The rest of it was architecture and archaeological inventory lists. A must-read for enthusiasts of floor plans of destroyed buildings that've been buried in ash for 1900 years

I have finally got through the useful and informative documentation at the back. I learned things from this about the earliest times of the settlement.
