Synopsis >

For the first time in 40 years, Brits can admire the remnants of Pompeii and Herculaneum, without having to travel to Italy. The British Museum in London has put together an exhibit of 450 objects from the cities famously buried under the ashes of Mount Vesuvius when it erupted in 79 AD. It includes items such as pots, murals and even bread, showing aspects of everyday life in ancient Rome, says curator Paul Roberts.
