Editorial Reviews

Just a few miles from fabled Pompeii is Herculaneum, another city buried and frozen in time by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in A.D. 79. Today, geo-archeologists are chipping away at the soft rock, revealing that this city, unlike Pompeii, was not suffocated by falling ash. Rather, it was engulfed by blistering pyroclastic flows that instantly caused horrific damage to those it encountered.

Herculaneum, through history, has always been eclipsed by its fellow victim, Pompeii. Now, however, it is receiving the research and restoration that this city from the past deserves. The absence of bodies in the well-preserved town suggested that the citizens of Herculaneum had all escaped before the pyroclastic flow covered it over. In 1981, public works employees discovered a cache of skeletons in a boathouse outside the city proper. Sadly, it appeared that they had all been killed not by lava or ash, but by the intense heat the preceded the flow. Since that time, extensive research has been ongoing. This well-produced DVD tells the story of what has been found and deduced so far. Herculaneum is far better preserved, with many structures intact, than is Pompeii. Fascinating.

I hoped the video would show more about the reconstruction and explain more details. I also wanted to see something about how they restored the Philodemus papyri. Instead, it seemed to be an attempt at a sensationalized account of death at Pompeii and Herculaneum. I did learn some things, but it was not as informational as I thought it would be. I thought I would show it to my class, but I think it would be a waste of classtime.

I've seen better documentaries, but I enjoyed this one. Pompeii is quite well known, but it's sister site, 9 miles north up the coast towards Naples, is another, very similar and unique site of Herculaneum. Yes, awkward name and surprisingly hard to find (I just visited in June 2014). This documentary does describe the significant differences between the two disaster sites and the effects of the Mt Vesuvius eruption were very different. Well done.
