A compelling and updated new edition of this popular text to provide even greater support for HSC Ancient History.
Cities of Vesuvius: Pompeii and Herculaneum Second Edition has been revised and updated to provide even greater support for the core topic of the NSW HSC Ancient History syllabus. Compelling primary sources, exam-style questions and up-to-date information on recent archaeological techniques, technologies, projects and findings are combined in an engaging full-colour layout to provide every student with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed at HSC.
The extensive focus on primary sources encourages students to assess, understand, analyse and interpret historical data as they develop the skills required to think like an historian.
Source-based questions further develop these skills and reflect the structure and style of the HSC exam.
Other in-chapter tasks and questions provide opportunities for students to immediately apply their knowledge or provoke discussion and further research.
Current information on the methods, interpretations and ethical issues of modern archaeology, including a final chapter on what is happening now in Pompeii, ensures students are engaging with the most current material available.
