In just one day in AD79, Pompeii and Herculaneum, the south of Italy were buried by a catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius. 2034 years later we are honoured to be able to offer a glimpse into the daily life of the Roman Empire. From the bustling streets and private homes of Roman civilisation this major exhibition in the beautiful surroundings of the British Museum in Bloomsbury, London, will open your eyes to the minutae of every day lifefor the doomed populations of these two infamous Italian cities.
