The British Museum is running an exhibition on Pompeii – Life and death Pompeii and Herculaneum. The exhibition is on until September and I will definitely be visiting. Perhaps that’s why my mind immediately went to molten lava when I saw last Friday’s IF topic. I had a bit of fun:
Of course, as we all know, it wasn’t slow moving lava that got them in Pompeii but the rather scarier and speedier pyroclastic flow (but I guess such subtleties are of no consequence if you’re a statue with a top speed of about 0mph!).
