Bound for disaster – Pompeii and Herculaneum

One of the world’s most famous archaeological sites will be on display at Moesgaard Museum from 6th November, when the museum opens this year’s major special exhibition ''. Moesgaard has been given the opportunity to display spectacular exhibits from Italy, and the exhibition takes visitors on a tour of the vibrant city of Pompeii at its absolute height. Here, the Romans gathered the threads of contacts across the Mediterranean, and here they lived the high life – la dolce vita – before disaster struck the Bay of Naples in AD 79, and both Pompeii and Herculaneum were destroyed when the volcano Vesuvius erupted. Very few cultural treasures from prehistory and classical antiquity survive to a degree that enables us to look back today and experience everyday moments and events that took place many centuries ago. The Roman city of Pompeii on the Bay of Naples is one of them, and its ruins provide a rare and legendary snapshot of Roman daily life. In AD 79 the volcano Vesuvius erupted and discharged explosive waves of volcanic ash and rock out over the Bay of Naples. The citizens of the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum and the surrounding rural settlements became victims of the eruption, perceived as the end of the world. Snapshots of these flourishing towns and the victims, captured and frozen in terror as they fled from the scorching lava and ash, have – ever since the first excavations of the towns in 1592 and the scientific investigations initiated in the 18th century – attracted the world’s attention, and the ruins of the towns have since been visited by millions of tourists. …Read more
