Pompeii: Back From the Dead – A Great 2011 Documentary on Netflix (Gupta)

Last night I watched a great documentary on Netflix called Pompeii: Back from the Dead. It is from 2011, but it is new to me and the film is produced very well. The documentary talks about a (then) new discovery of a group of skeletons in a cellar that tells us scores and scores about these people’s diet, social customs, relative wealth, and even sex life. Some of the insights are summarized here. More info here.

If you have Netflix or access to this film otherwise, it is definitely worth the time!
