The destruction of Pompeii seen through the eyes of Tranio, an actor's son, and his friend Livia, the baker's daughter.

Travel back in time to view the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the Roman Empire. Join Tranio, the son of an actor, and his friend Livia, the baker's daughter, in witnessing the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79. Tranio, like most Roman boys, likes to watch whatever is going on: tradesmen selling their goods, ships unloading their exotic cargoes, politicians making speeches in the forum.
