About this Event:

Visiting the twin cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, both buried under a mountain of volcanic ash when Vesuvius erupted in AD 79, is an unforgettable experience. Cast bodies of the victims provide stark evidence of the sudden and deadly force of the volcano. Paul Roberts brings back to life the citizens of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Objects such as bronze busts, mosaics, frescoes, silver drinking cups, the birth certificate of a little girl and bottles for fish sauce all help to offer a glimpse into daily life.

Roberts is head of the Roman section at the British Museum, and Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum is published to complement a major new exhibition at the British Museum running from March 28 to September 29, 2013. Roberts is responsible for all the Roman collections other than sculptures and wall paintings. His particular research interests lie in the day-to-day aspects of life in the Roman world.
