Fascinating artefacts from the lives of people in the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum before they were devastated by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79 are to feature at the British museum in a new exhibition next year.
Including more than 250 archaeological remains, the display will include the casts of some of the volcano`s victims and will explore the ‘real` Roman people and not the emporers and gladiators portrayed in film according to the British Museum.
The first exhibition of its kind in London for 40 years, other interesting objects on display include a linen chest, a garden bench and a baby`s crib.
Titled Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum, the exhibition will open from 28 March and run until 29 September, 2013.
Just one of many events and exhibitions taking place throughout the capital, it comes as great news for any culture vultures looking to take a break in one of the fine hotels in London
over the coming year.
