With daily reports in the press about collapses in Pompeii and the calamitous state of the ancient remains, we may ask why it has proved so difficult to preserve this uniquely important site. Professor Wallace-Hadrill looks at the problem from the perspective of the sister-site of Herculaneum, where for over a decade he has been involved in a project to conserve this Roman city, in many ways more vivid and more at risk than Pompeii.
