Castra Romana: Pompeii, The Day Before Vesuvius

On February 2-4, 2007, Vesuvius will errupt all over again...well, almost. Castra Romana-Pompeii, a Roman Era Re-enactment, will hold an event recreating the day before the catastrophic events of August 24, 79 C.E.

From the Castra Romana website:

"A day in Pompeii takes visitors back in time to experience life and death in this cosmopolitan city. The exhibition features over 250 exceptional objects that lay buried in Pompeii’s ruins for over 17 centuries. Included are room-size frescoes, marble and bronze sculptures, jewelry, gold coins and everyday household items – all of which evoke the richness and culture of daily life in the Roman Empire’s favorite vacation resort."
