One of the highlights of 2013 for history and archaeology lovers is bound to be the Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum exhibition, which opens next month at the British Museum in London (28th March – 29th September 2013). This week, Classics Confidential went to the BM to talk to the assistant curator of the exhibition, Vanessa Baldwin, who gave us some fascinating insights into the long process of planning and staging a major international museum exhibition. Thanks very much to Vanessa and lead curator Paul Roberts for sharing some of the excitement of the final preparations – we can’t wait to visit the exhibition this summer!
