I found a great short article in USA Today talking about new studies involving Pompeii. There is so much interesting work going on at the site — and artifacts are on exhibit at museums around the world.

A few weeks ago I took a trip up north and visited the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore. Over the years I had often come across discussions of pieces in the Walters collection, and had long wanted to visit. It is terrific — one of the finest museums I have visited in the U.S. They have a comprehensive collection of Greek and Roman antiquities, including sculpture, painting, jewelry, metalwork, coins and more. The website for the museum is also excellent — you can view images of the items in the collection and read brief descriptions. Well worth checking out – and certainly worth a visit if you are near Baltimore or passing through (there is no substitute for seeing things in person!!)
