"Herculaneum: The Archaeology of Catastrophe - Life and Death in a Roman Resort Town"
Mt. Vesuvius' eruption in 79 CE affords a unique opportunity to study life and death among the ancient Romans in ways that are truly unique in the study of the bioarchaeology of the ancient world.

In conjunction with Franklin Institute's Special Exhibition One Day in Pompeii (November 9, 2013 through April 27, 2014), the Pompeii Lectures at Penn Museum are part of the Year of Italian Culture.
