In AD 79, Mount Vesuvius buried Pompeii's beautiful estates, surrounding farmland and nearby villages under pumice and hot ash, preserving them for centuries. The eruption killed thousands in the midst of their daily activities, giving us a picture of what life was like in a thriving Roman city.
The exhibit "Last Supper in Pompeii" at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, has a treasure trove of over 300 objects uncovered from the ash. They reveal the Roman love affair with food and wine and how their production, distribution and consumption affected every aspect of Roman life and art.
