Pompeii Lecture Series
Visiting with the Ancients: Herculaneum, Pompeii and the Grand Tour
Victoria Coates, Penn Department of Art History, speaks. The Grand Tour, a phenomenon of upper-class young men from Northern Europe visiting the classical ruins of the south, was well established by the time Herculaneum and then Pompeii were excavated in the 18th century. Their recovery transformed the practice, however, adding a new de rigueur stop on the itinerary where eager antiquarians were promised an opportunity to directly encounter the Roman past. Victoria Coates explains how these elite travelers experienced the new excavations. Admission: $10, general public; $5, Penn Museum members, AIS members (with code), and Franklin Institute members (with code).
