Exhibition: Imperium

Another exhibition featuring things from Pompeii just opened at Haltern in Germany. (I'm losing count how many exhibitions there are now!). However, this isn't a 'Pompeii' exhibition but rather an exhibition entitled 'Imperium' to commemorate 2,000 years since the defeat of Varus. Included in the exhibition are artefacts from the House of the Lyre Player (I.4, I think) such as the famous bronze ephebe found in this house.

Here's the story, from Corriere del Mezzogiorno.

If you want to know more about the exhibition: They put up a webpage that also contains information in English... Actually "Imperium" at Haltern is only part of a collaboration of three sites: Haltern, Kalkriese and Detmold (all dealing with 2000 years after Varus):
