Well, today is supposed to be the anniversary of the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79. It might be, it might not be. The jury is still out, and has been for around 150 years. And, honestly, does the exact date matter? What does it change? But if you feel like celebrating the anniversary today, check out today's Rogue Classicism for a clip of the 1960s version of the Last Days of Pompeii. Cheesy, but fun.
More important to my mind is the news that we will have a new Superintendent at Pompeii and must bid Prof. Guzzo a sad farewell. Today marks the start of another new era at Pompeii.
