In Ceridwen Dovey's latest novel, In the Garden of the Fugitives (Penguin Random House, March 2018), one strand of the narrative is set in the early 1970s in an archaeological dig within the ruins of the ancient city of Pompeii. Ceridwen will share some thoughts about her process of using real-life research done in Pompeii by extraordinary women (such as the Australian archaeologist Estelle Lazer, who studies Pompeii’s human remains) as the inspiration for her fiction, and reflect on some of the iconic images that influenced aspects of her new novel.
