Pompeii

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts – February 6 to September 5, 2016

Go way back to the seventh century B.C. with an exhibit that tells the tragic story of Pompeii. It was a small colony in the Roman Empire that was destroyed and burned down by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Burried under more than fifteen feet of ashes,  many objects have been preserved thanks to the lack of air and moisture, showing how people used to live back then.
