Stay late at the British Museum on Friday 10th May 2013 and you can find out what a night out in the Bay of Naples in AD 55 was like. Late in Pompeii is a free late-night event which ties in with the museum's Pompeii and Herculaneum exhibition, giving visitors an insight into everyday rituals like how the Romans had their hair done. You can try the food of the time, drop in on the latest forum debates, browse through the Roman shops and hear readings of Roman love poetry. Given all the overtly erotic images in Roman art it seems sensible that there's a free talk on Sex in Pompeii and Herculaneum from 7pm, booking advised.

About British Museum

If you wanted to thoroughly explore the British Museum, it would take months, if not years. Over seven millions objects from all over the world are housed in this impressive museum of human history and culture (many of the artefacts are stored underneath the museum due to lack of space).
