Pompeii at the British Museum

Managed to get to the acclaimed Pompeii exhibit at the British Museum earlier this year. It was pretty good though some of the exhibits (or similar ones) could have been found at the museum already. The power of the exhibit is seeing a snap shot of the world from almost 2,000 years ago and where the similarities and differences with our own world exist. The casts of the bodies and the artefacts that have survived for so long is remarkable. Having some knowledge of the period already meant I wasn’t amazed (though I didn’t buy the audio guide so that was a limiting factor) but it was still worth it.
