This exhibition will plunge you into the heart of the drama and the ruins of the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, lost for almost 1500 years after being buried by a catastrophic volcanic eruption in 79 AD. Now the most advanced scientific research brings to light the extraordinary achievements of Pompeii and Roman society. You’ll see artworks and artifacts that take you into the world of a first-century Roman town. Then hear the roar of Mount Vesuvius and feel the earth move under your feet as the volcano erupts before your eyes.
