Life and death Pompeii and Herculaneum

A cast of a woman, one of more than 70 people who died in the basement of a villa in Oplontis, near Pompeii, is seen during a photo call for the upcoming exhibition entitled 'Life and death Pompeii and Herculaneum', at the British Museum in central London, Tuesday, March 26, 2013. The void her body left in the ash was filled with clear epoxy resin, and he resulting cast reveals her skeleton and the jewelry she was wearing. The exhibition about the two Roman cities, buried by a catastrophic volcanic eruption of Mount Vezuvius in 79 AD, will run at the museum from March 28 to Sept. 29, 2013.
