Event Details

Presented by Gillian Hovell

A deep insight into the many kinds of art found in the homes and streets of Roman Pompeii; they reveal a thoroughly modern world, one full of material goods and works of art, in which craftsmanship and artistry were draped around the Romans themselves and amidst their everyday lives. Pompeii’s survival gives us a glimpse of the Roman Empire, in all its vastness. Its volcanic burial captured multicultural vibrant lives. Its triumph and tragedy still speak to us across the millennia.

Gillian Hovell graduated with 2-1 (Hons) in Latin and Ancient History from Exeter University. She worked in BBC Television and went on to become an award-winning freelance writer, author, international public speaker & broadcaster, specialising in archaeology, prehistory and in the Greek and Roman eras. She is a lecturer at York University and has spoken at the British Museum and frequently on TV & Radio. Gillian now actively digs at major sites in the UK and Europe.
