Town Hall Theater
12/13-12/13/2013
Pompeii offers an exclusive private view of the British Museum's blockbuster show, Life and death in Pompeii and Herculaneum. Pompeii and Herculaneum were buried by a catastrophic volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in just 24 hours in AD 79. This event ended the life of the cities but at the same time preserved them until rediscovery by archaeologists nearly 1700 years later. The excavation of these cities has given us unparalleled insight into Roman life. The exhibition will bring together over 250 fascinating objects, both recent discoveries and celebrated finds from earlier excavations including casts from in and around Pompeii of some of the victims of the eruption. A family of two adults and their two children are huddled together in their last moments under the stairs of their villa. The most famous of the casts on display is of a dog, fixed forever at the moment of its death as the volcano submerged the cities.
