Frozen in time...

Plaster casts of victims buried following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius around 2,000 years ago.

They are part of a major exhibition of more than 250 archaeological discoveries in the British Museum about the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Jewellery still intact, a cot turned to charcoal… they offer a snapshot of the lives of ordinary people at the time.
