Insula of the Menander at Pompeii RSS

This series arises from the British Pompeii project, initiated in 1978. Its aim is to carry out a complete survey and record of the insula (city-block) containing the famous House of the Menander and to analyse and interpret the remains, which have not been reassessed since the original Italian publications of the early 1930s. This project breaks new ground by adopting a global approach to the insula, rather than looking at houses in isolation, and by seeking to interpret the insula in historical terms rather than concentrating on the situation at the time of Pompeii's destruction in AD 79. Emphasis is also placed on what the archaeological remains tell us about society within the insula. Individual volumes will deal with the architecture, the decorations, the objects found during excavation, the silver treasure discovered in 1930 under the baths of the House of the Menander, and the wall inscriptions.
