Photos: Life and death Pompeii and Herculaneum

'Life and death Pompeii and Herculaneum', an exhibit at the British Museum in central London, will run at the museum from March 28 to Sept. 29, 2013. The voids bodies left in the ash were filled with clear epoxy resin, and the resulting casts reveal details of those who died. 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.
