AIA Lecture Series. Pompeii: A Typical Roman Town
Start Date: 11/7/2012Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 11/7/2012End Time: 8:00 PM
Event Description:
In 79 AD Mount Vesuvius erupted violently, burying towns, killing thousands and permanently altering the landscape of the surrounding area. In 1748, after lying buried and forgotten for almost 1700 years, the town of Pompeii would be rediscovered, uncovered and ultimately commercialized. According to Shelly Martin " Pompeii was destined to become one of the most visited archaeological sites in the world." Martin will take visitors on a tour of Pompeii, exploring the locations and features of the town that made up a typical day in the ancient Roman world.
