Weaving together accounts of ancient authorities with research by forensic archaeologists, Pellegrino captures the final hours of Pompeii and Herculaneum. In the flash-fossilized remains of victims, he sees reminders of the abiding human hope to understand a brutal universe. Those… hopes live both in the science Pellegrino uses to interpret historic volcanic explosions as the distant consequence of the Big Bang, and in the startling connections he makes between the two cities buried by Vesuvius in 79 CE and the Twin Towers destroyed by terrorists in 2001. 2004.
