'Herculaneum: Living with Catastrophe'.24 March, Smith College (Graham Auditorium, Brown Fine Arts Center at Smith College , Northampton, MA)
Herculaneum, which shared the fate of Pompeii in the eruption of Vesuvius, has been the object of a major conservation campaign sponsored by Packard Humanities Institute and directed by Dr. Wallace-Hadrill since 2001. New discoveries made in the course of the project provide dramatic evidence for major geological activity dating back a century before the eruption, and to a long drawn-out catastrophe with which the inhabitants lived.
