During the Roman Empire by the first century C.E., Pompeii was a busy port on the Sarno River. Mount Vesuvius erupted on August 24, C.E and everything was covered with a thick layer of volcanic ash. In the 1700's Pompeii was rediscovered. Now, inquiring interested visitors to this traveling exhibit can view artifacts that were used in the kitchen, in fishing, in storing foods and in the marketplace - to categorize a few. Portions of fresco panels and garden statues are on view.
This is a beautiful exhibit that will leave Boston and then travel on to Cincinnati, OH and onto Denver, CO this year. If you have an opportunity to stop in to view this step back in time, I encourage you to do so. The Museum of Science, Boston has the online "AN EDUCATOR'S GUIDE" to view/print before you visit. Very helpful!
