Life and death in Pompeii and HerculaneumThis spring, the British Museum stages a major exhibition on Life and death in Pompeii and Herculaneum, an examination of two very different cities in the Bay of Naples, both buried by an eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Displaying over 250 objects, many of which have never before been seen outside Italy before, the museum conveys what everyday Roman life was like nearly 1700 years ago. Objects from Herculaneum, a small seaside town, include wooden furniture carbonized by the high temperatures of the ash and a baby's crib that still rocks on its curved runners. From Pompeii, the industrial hub of the region, we have a beautiful wall painting of the baker, Terentius Neo and his wife, who appear as equal partners, in business and in life. Other fascinating objects include sculpted marble reliefs, carved ivory panels and casts showing the Pompeii victims forever suspended in their last moments. An intriguing insight into the daily life of the Roman Empire.

 

About British Museum

If you wanted to thoroughly explore the British Museum, it would take months, if not years. Over seven millions objects from all over the world are housed in this impressive museum of human history and culture (many of the artefacts are stored underneath the museum due to lack of space).
