In 79 AD Mount Vesuvius erupted, burying the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum under huge waves of volcanic debris and ash (which ultimately preserved these two maritime cities and the residents who were unable to escape). As many tried to flee, the Roman navy attempted a heroic but ultimately tragic rescue of victims stranded at the foot of the volcano.

When excavation began 1700 years later researchers were astounded to find buildings, objects and remains of those who died in one of history’s most famous natural disasters. Reports and rare artefacts have made it possible for us to view this part of ancient history.

Don’t miss this opportunity to join us and explore the disaster that unfolded as a result of the eruption, and learn how the control of the Mediterranean gave the Roman Empire unprecedented prosperity.
