The Elephants of Rome: An Interview with Mary Beard (pt. 2)

clipped from
This is Part Two of a two-part interview with Mary Beard, Professor of Classics at Cambridge University and general editor of the Wonders of the World series, published by Profile and Harvard University Press.
Part One can be found here.

In Part Two we discuss cultural authenticity and the rise of archaeo-tourism; China, the pirating of ancient history, and plaster casts of statuary; A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum; and the little-understood lost lifestyle patterns of the pyroclastically entombed Pompeii.
