Last Supper at Pompeii - Lecture and Exhibition at the Ashmolean
Monday 04 November 2019

Located in the sunny paradise of southern Italy, Pompeii was sandwiched between lush vineyards and fertile plains to one side, and the bountiful waters of the Bay of Naples to the other.  When the ash from Mount Vesuvius began raining down on Pompeii in AD 79, people were engaged in typical day to day activities.  

See over 400 rare objects, including fine masterpieces of Roman art.  Everything from the exquisite mosaics and frescoes in the villas of the wealthy to the remains found in kitchen drains, show what the Pompeiians loved to eat and drink.  This remarkable exhibition provides an extraordinary insight into their everyday lives.
