Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Students sitting the NSW HSC Ancient history examination n 2006 will be mightily familiar with Pliny the Younger’s two letters to Tacitus on the subject of Vesuvius’ eruption and of his uncle’s death (Letters 6.16 & 20). There are, of course, other accounts. Paleogeologists and volcanologists have now essayed a narrative of events which can even distinguish a different sequence of events in different districts of Pompeii.
