The British Museum presents a major exhibition about the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the first Pompeii exhibition in Britain in forty years.
While previous exhibitions focused on public spaces, this one shows how the cities' residents lived by taking visitors on a tour of the streets, salons and bedrooms of the ancient Roman world.
According to the museum's curator, "domestic life is something we all share. We don't all go to the baths, we don't all go to the amphitheater but we all have a home."
Pompeii and Herculaneum, which were situated near the Bay of Naples, were wiped out by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D., leaving behind nothing but archaeological remains beneath the ash.
