Roman Rescue 5


We also liked these Roman era amphorae from Pompeii, which were used to store and transport wine, fish and olive oil. The “Escape from Pompeii” exhibition at the Maritime Museum in Fremantle ends on 4 February – don’t miss it!

Roman Rescue 1


We recently went to see the “Escape from Pompeii” exhibition at the Maritime Museum in Fremantle. It tells the story of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79CE and the attempted rescue of people in nearby Pompeii by the Roman navy. With lots of amazing exhibits, it’s a great exhibition and we’ll worth a visit.
