Yr 11 and 12 Ancient History Excursion

A Day in Pompeii. Yr 11 and 12 Ancient History.

Students from Ancient History in Years 11 and 12 attended the Australian Maritime Museum to explore the ‘A Day in Pompeii’ traveling exhibition. Students interacted with 2000 year old artefacts from the Naples Museum revealing events from 24-25 August 79AD when Mt Vesuvius erupted. On display were bronze cooking pots, restored amphorae (pottery storage vessels), gold jewellery, plaster casts of victims’ bodies and a massive ‘treasure chest’ from the foyer of a rich house. The Students also checked out the Destroyer HMAS Vampire.
