In 1897 two Oxford archaeologists began digging a series of low sand-covered mounds a hundred miles south of Cairo, on a side branch of the Nile.They turned out to be the rubbish-dumps of an administrative centre and thriving city at the time of the Roman Empire - Oxrhynchos ('City of the Sharp-Nosed Fish') - inhabited by descendants of the Greek immigrants who had colonized Egypt after Alexander the Great's conquest in 332 BC. When Grenfall and Hunt had finally finished, ten years later - battling against sandstorms, theft and the sheer size of their discovery - they had uncovered, amidst the rubbish, 500,000 fragments of papyrus.The papyri were shipped back to Oxford and the task of deciphering these fragments began.It is still going on today. These papyri are a unique treasure-trove of original books and documents, in which lost masterpieces of Greek literature not seen by human eyes since the fall of Rome, and fragments of censored Christian Gospels, rub shoulders with tax returns, petitions, private letters, sales documents, loans, leases, wills and shopping-lists.What the excavators had found was the entire life and culture of a flourishing market-town, encapsulated in its waste paper.We hear the voices of beekeepers and boat-makers, dyers and donkey-drivers, weavers and wine-merchants, set against the great events of their age - the climax and crisis of the Roman Empire and the coming of Christianity.

When rediscovery came in the eighteenth century,educated Europe was enthralled-until Pompeii ,no one knew how the ancient Romans actually lived.For some,Pompeii seemed an idyllic world. For others,Pompeii represented the ultimate in decadence and sin. In both cases Pompeii aroused passionate interest.Patronage,poetry,propaganda,sex and death: These are the hallmarks of its second life.And this book is the story of the heroes,heroines and villains of the second life of ancient Pompeii.
