“The Other Pompeii: Life & Death in Herculaneum” (2013) IMDb


Seen in 2019.


The archaeology of Herculaneum, from legal records of remakarble social mobility to stunning mosaics of the local seafood to the experts who’ve spent the preceding decade studying that seafood as human excrement.


For a serious documentary without any dramatizations at all, it brings the place alive remarkably well, slavery and all.
