Boscoreale

A visit to the Antiquarium and archaeological site at Boscoreale - just a few miles north of Pompei - for details, see:

Sadly, the collection in the Antiquarium is missing the best of what was found nearby - amongst
the plunder carried away over the years...

- frescoes from a villa, said to be that of P. Fannius Synistor - long lost to American hands:

- much of the fabulous Boscoreale treasure, unearthed in 1895, is displayed at the Louvre, in Paris:

April 2013 note... Some of the Boscoreale artefacts that do remain are currently "on loan" to London,
where they can be seen as part of this bumper exhibition - set to run until the end of September:

On display during our visit was a collection of plaster casts of bodies found in the ruins of several
of the ancient Roman villas - all of whom had been buried alive during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius
in 79 AD.
