Don’t miss this major exhibition on the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, opening in Spring 2013 at the British Museum. This exhibition will be the first ever held on these important cities at the British Museum, and the first such major exhibition in London for almost 40 years.
AD 79. In just 24 hours, two cities in the Bay of Naples in southern Italy were buried by a catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Preserved under ash, their rediscovery nearly 1,700 years later provided an unparalleled glimpse into the daily life of the Roman Empire. From the bustling street to the intimate spaces of a Roman home, this major exhibition will take you to the heart of people’s lives in Pompeii and Herculaneum.
