Pompeii, destroyed in 79 AD by the eruption of Vesuvius, will be bought back to life through the modeling medium of LEGO. Once again, Ryan 'the Brickman' McNaught will interpret one of the classical world's most well known and loved sites as a LEGO creation, presenting the town of Pompeii how it looked at the time of its destruction as well as the ruins we see today. Archaeological material from the city of Pompeii and the Roman empire will be on exhibition along side the monumental LEGO construction.


Exhibition opens January 2015
