Pompeii Lecture Series
Dining and Lovemaking in Pompeii
Dr. Brian Rose, Curator-in-Charge, Mediterranean Section, speaks. The destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 CE allows us to reconstruct extensively the nature of daily life in an Early Imperial Roman town, especially the residents' attitudes toward food and sex. Dr. Rose presents an overview of those attitudes by examining the archaeological discoveries in both cities, including the wall paintings, mosaics, dining rooms, and food remains. The discussion also includes cookbooks and dinner parties as well as prostitution and same-sex relationships. Admission: $10, general public; $5, Penn Museum members and Franklin Institute members.
