Cheers for Pompeii

Do you remember an old blog post of mine on the vineyards of Pompeii? Well, there’s an update, and more info, on Twitter, in a thread from the official Pompeii Sites account dating back to August:

I found it at the end of another, more recent, thread from Pompeii Sites, about Roman wines more generally:

LATER: More on the grapes and wines of Pompeii.

EVEN LATER: It turns out there’s someone documenting all the gardens of Pompeii.

EVEN LATER STILL: And Dr Jane Draycott has written extensively on Roman gardens in general.

OH FOR PITY’S SAKE: Now there’s a podcast. Very good it is too, though.
