Almost 2,000 years ago in southern Italy, the volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted violently, with tremendous force and little warning. Pompeii remained buried for nearly 1,700 years until archaeologists uncovered the city suspended in time.

Over 200 objects excavated from the ancient site, including stunning gold and silver, exquisite mosaics and jewellery, artifacts from everyday life, iconic body casts and more, tell the story of Pompeii, its people, and its astonishing legacy – unique and remarkably preserved.
