Watch the film The Other Pompeii: Life and Death in Herculaneum. Answer the following prompt with an original comment (250 words min.)


What was the single most surprising thing you learned from the film about life in the Roman Empire? Explain how scholars working at Herculaneum discovered this thing that surprises you: how did they reconstruct the past working only from physical remains (whether biological remains like skeletons or cultural remains like buildings and objects)? Finally, tell us how this surprising thing changes your view of antiquity.


Separate Extra Credit Post: Using the internet as your resource, find and share an interesting artifact recovered from Herculaneum or Pompeii. Include a photo of the artifact in your post, explain what it is, and why you find it interesting. 10 points possible.
