Dr Paul Roberts, Senior Roman Curator at the British Museum, will talk about his major new exhibition at the British Museum ‘Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum’. This exhibition will display over 250 objects from recent excavations alongside earlier well known finds many of which are displayed outside of Italy for the first time. The exhibition will focus on the Roman home exploring the lives of individuals in Roman society, not the classic figures, such as emperors, gladiators and legionaries, but businessmen, powerful women, freed slaves and children. Following this talk there will be the opportunity to handle local Roman artefacts in the Museum. Talks are FREE and very popular.
