Herculaneum: The Archaeology of Catastrophe—Life and Death in a Roman Resort Town

Sunday, Nov 17, 2013 2:00p
Penn Museum Philadelphia, PA

Dr. Janet Monge, Curator-in-Charge, Physical Anthropology Section, speaks. Mt. Vesuvius exploded and rained down superheated gas and lava onto the nearby towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Some inhabitants of Herculaneum escaped into beach caves. Their deaths by heat shock affords an opportunity to study life and death among the ancient Romans, in ways that are truly unique in the study of the bioarchaeology of the ancient world.
