The Other Pompeii - Life and Death in the Herculaneum - Just 10 miles from Pompeii along the ancient shoreline 12 arched vaults are telling a whole new story about what life was like before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. They contain the skeletons of no less than 340 people just 10% of the local population killed by the volcano. Amongst them are the first new skeletons to be found in the area for 30 years; they are now the subject of a ground-breaking scientific investigation secured in a world exclusive for the BBC. Presented by Pompeianist Professor Andrew Wallace-Hadrill of the University of Cambridge and Director of the Herculaneum Conservation Project we meet the scientists leading the forensic project - Luca Bondioli and Luciano Fattore - and then go on a tour of the incredible town where the skeletons once lived. On his journey Andrew uncovers their houses their wooden furniture and their food which are perfectly preserved by a layer of ash up to five times deeper than Pompeii. With stunning aerial photography of Herculaneum this film gives us a behind the scenes look at this place and its extraordinary ancient inhabitants as theyve never been seen before. It opens the lid on a tiny yet astonishing Roman town which drew immigrants from Syria and beyond and where perfectly preserved court Pompeii - Life and Death in a Roman Town - Pompeii: one of the most famous volcanic eruptions in history. We know how its victims died but this film sets out to answer another question - how did they live? Gleaning evidence from an extraordinary find Cambridge professor and Pompeii expert Mary Beard provides new insight into the lives of the people who lived in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius before its cataclysmic eruption. In a dark cellar in Oplontis just three miles from the centre of Pompeii 54 skeletons who didnt succumb to the torrent of volcanic ash are about to be put under the microscope. The remains will be submitted to a barrage of tests that will unlock one of the most comprehensive scientific snapshots of Pompeian life ever produced - and there are some big surprises in store. Using the latest forensic techniques it is now possible to determine what those who perished in the disaster ate and drank where they came from what diseases they suffered how rich they were and perhaps even more astonishingly the details of their sex lives. The way the remains were found in the cellar already provides an invaluable clue about the lives of the people they belonged to. On one side of the room were individuals buried with one of the most stunning hauls of gold jewellery and coins ever found in Pompeii. On the other were people buried with nothing. It looked the stark dividing line of a polarised ancient society: a room partitioned between super rich and abject poor. But on closer examination the skeletons reveal some surprises about life in Pompeii.
