The Arts Society Tonbridge Talk: The Cities of Vesuvius by Steve Kershaw

In 79 AD, an enormous eruption of Mt Vesuvius both destroyed and preserved the vibrant Roman towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The circumstances of their preservation provides us with invaluable information about Roman life across every stratum of society. Illustrated with slides, video, ancient texts and graffitti, this talk will present a wide range of fascinating, beautiful and moving insights into Roman life in the the 1st century AD.
The lecture begins at 2.30pm. All are welcome. Visitors £7.
