This interactive talk explores the myths, legends and scenes of daily life that Romans painted and scratched onto the walls of their houses.
Ashmolean After Hours: Carpe Diem!
Mount Vesuvius is thought to have begun erupting on 24 October AD 79. Almost two thousand years later, TORCH collaborated with the Ashmolean Museum for a special edition of After Hours to 'seize the day' and celebrate all things Pompeii and ancient Rome, with bite-sized talks from students and researchers, and activities for all to enjoy.
This event was part of the Humanities Cultural Programme.
