Not only was I fortunate enough to be a part of Paul W. S. Anderson’s recreation of 79 AD “Pompeii” but I had a chance to visit the true site in 2002. Walking around in the unearthed city was truly equal parts eerie and awe inspiring. Peeking into the active workshop where artifacts are still being recovered, I could see some of the plaster cast human and animal hollows created by the pyroclastic surge that entombed an entire city, preserving it frozen in time.

Paul W. S. Anderson did an amazing job and painstakingly recreated the city of “Pompeii”. It felt right and looked great on film.

"Temple of Jupiter"

A photo I took of the remains of the “Temple of Jupiter”. This is where Kit Harrington and Keifer Sutherland's climactic battle takes place in the movie “Pompeii”. Mount Vesuvius looms ominously in the distance. Photo (c) Derek Herd 2002
