A Don's Life: In Pompeii-land
Welcome to the internet: posting a blog post on my blog. Mary Beard again contemplates Pompeii, and this time doesn't like what she sees: a revamped house of C. Julius Polybius with reconstructed furniture that smacks of Ikea and a holographic Roman projected on a curtain (which sounds really creepy). While I might pay extra to see this place just to help out the cause, it would indeed be nice if it could be less cheesy. We'll check it out next summer, perhaps, if the place is still standing.
