Where did the Pompeians Go? Searching for Refugees of the Eruption of Vesuvius, AD 79
September 17, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
A lecture featuring Steven L. Tuck, Professor of Classics, Miami University
This lecture, and the project it is based on, attempt to answer two major questions. First, can we find any survivors of the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79? Second, if so, what does the pattern of resettlement tell us about social networks and the role of Roman government in the aftermath of the eruption?
