Community Preview BM Pompeii and Herculaneum

The London West End Women's Institute have been invited to the next British Museum community preview on Sunday 24th March between 11am and 5pm

The LWEWI have been given a limited number of tickets, if you are interested in coming along please get in touch using the usual e-mail londonwestendwi@gmail.com.


In Spring 2013 the British Museum will present a major exhibition on the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, sponsored by Goldman Sachs. This exhibition will be the first ever held on these important cities at the British Museum, and the first such major exhibition in London for almost 40 years. It is the result of close collaboration with the Archaeological Superintendency of Naples and Pompeii, will bring together over 250 fascinating objects, both recent discoveries and celebrated finds from earlier excavations. Many of these objects have never before been seen outside Italy. The exhibition will have a unique focus, looking at the Roman home and the people who lived in these ill-fated cities. source
