The Roman towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum need no introduction to visitors holidaying on the Bay of Naples. The towns and several villages including numerous private villas in the area were buried for centuries under ash, pumice and mud following the catastrophic volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD. The true number of casualties is not known but it has been estimated that around 20,000 people lost their lives in the Bay of Naples area as a result of the eruption.

Jim Walker’s talk will look at the excavations that have uncovered the buried remains of Pompeii and Herculaneum, showing Roman life as it was frozen in time in the 1st century AD.
