Extremely well done

We thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to view the British Museum exhibit. By learning about the objects used by the people in their daily lives we got a fascinating glimpse of the lives that were snuffed out on that terrible day. The experts' details gave us great insight into this vanished world. This was visually stunning. My only negative comment is that I would have liked to see more views of the streets and buildings. I visited Pompeii this past spring and I think that would have added more enjoyment. But very well done, and recommended for anyone who might have an interest in the history of this place and this event.

I wish I had three thumbs -- they'd all be "up"! What a terrific bird's eye view of a tremendously interesting subject. I hope the British Museum does more in the future!

Like a day in Pompeii

Very educational, especially with the world renown experts in the field giving a detailed summary. A very interesting look into the day that was horribly tragic but also a valuable preservation for future generations. The world has learned a ton of valuable information about the Roman culture through this horrible disaster. It was nice to know that about 90% of the population actually escaped that night.

The presentation from the British Museum was a magnificent scholarly lecture on the exhibit in London. Thank you for making this type of program available to the public.

Pompeii

Just as I had expected. A thoroughly enjoyable learning experience about the last 2 days of Pompeii. The pieces they showed, the enjoyable interaction between the presenters and the overall beauty along with the great tragedy of that last few days were unspeakably poignant.
