British Museum announces Pompeii and Herculaneum app

The British Museum has announced a Pompeii and Herculaneum iOS app and an Android version available from 2 May.

Pompeii and Herculaneum app
Explore life and death in the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum using streetmaps of the areas, with key objects featured in the exhibition plotted on the maps.

As well as information and zoomable images of the objects, the app also includes curatorial insights into what life was like in these two different cities. The themes include: urban context, commerce, religion and beliefs, wealth and status, grooming and adornment, relaxation, entertainment, and food and drink.

Each of the eight themes has an exclusive video introduction by the exhibition curator, Paul Roberts.
