Life & Death in Pompeii & Herculaneum, 14 September, 7.30pm

An illustrated lecture by Dr Paul Roberts

Saturday 14 September, 7.30pm, Big School

This summer's major exhibition at the British Museum – Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum – has been one of their most popular ever. It continues until 29 September, but if you have not been, now is your chance to experience some of its wonder.

Dr Roberts is Head of the Roman collections at the British Museum and is curator of the exhibition on daily life in the two ill-fated settlements on the Bay of Naples. He has excavated widely in Italy and is interested in the art and archeaology of the Roman world, but his research focuses on bringing to life the material, day -to-day lives of ordinary people.

This event is free and open to everyone. To reserve your seat please contact the Box Office on 01992 706355 or by email:
