Step back in time and visit the "vanished city" on its last day, as the mighty volcano Vesuvius explodes in a 24-hour reign of terror. On August 24th, AD79, Pompeii's citizens witness day turning into night as 4 billion tons of pumice, rock, and ash burst forth from Vesuvius. Pompeii: The Last Day uses archaeological evidence, including the writings of one survivor, to unravel the mystery of those final hours. Lavish special effects reconstruct each stage of Vesuvius's cataclysmic eruption and its impact on soldiers, slaves, families, and lovers as they struggle with the unfolding tragedy. One of the greatest natural disasters - and most fateful days--comes to vivid life in this critically acclaimed dramatization.

Editor's Note
Drawing on some incredible special effects work, a good eye for detail, and some meticulously researched facts, this reconstruction of the last day of Pompeii is a real sight to behold. The city was destroyed by the explosion of mount Vesuvius, which erupted and engulfed the city in molten lava on August 24th, AD79. The day is reconstructed here, illustrating the devastating effect the volcano had on the city and its population--effectively wiping both from the globe. Jawdropping detail is deployed throughout, making this one of the most accurate accounts of what happened to Pompeii.
