Описание: This book explores the significance of the Isis myth in Roman culture and society using the evidence found at Pompeii, such as the Temple of Isis (one of the first structures to be excavated after the re-discovery of Pompeii), statues of the Goddess, and other objects. The great Isis Temple, Egyptian style in house decoration, an artificial canal reproducing the Nile in a villa - Isis and Egypt were very dear to the Pompeian people. During archaeological digs in Pompeii the remains of a young girl - running from the eruption - were found; in her arms she was clutching her silver statue of Isis. The first archaeological discoveries in Pompeii, during the eighteenth century, were integral in spreading one of the strongest fascinations with all things Egyptian during modern times; the discoveries influenced art, fashion, writers and sculptors across the globe. Pompeii was an unavoidable stop in the Grand Tour and still remains essential for any contemporary traveller especially fond of Egyptian esotericism.

Archaeological excavation of the site began in 1748 and revealed extraordinary evidence about public and private life at the height of the Roman Empire. Colin Amery and Brian Curran Jr of the World Monuments Fund describe the history of Pompeii from its origins to its tragic destruction, and discuss the repercussions of the discoveries made there on art, archaeology and interior design. They also explain the ongoing conservation and renovation work that is taking place at the site today.
