Pompeii on BBC Radio 4: Andrew Wallace-Hadrill on reconstructing ruins

Some of you may have heard a familiar voice this morning on BBC Radio 4 with Andrew Wallace-Hadrill and Caroline Lawrence speaking on the reconstruction of ruins at Pompeii. Lawrence speaks in favour of establishing a Pompeian model of the Dutch Archaeon, while Wallace-Hadrill is against it for reasons of funding the conservation of Pompeii rather than directing money elsewhere.

The broadcast is available here on BBC iPlayer for 7 days (interview at 2h54min).
