Five films about Pompeii

Episode 2: Shopping in Pompeii

A frieze from 18th-century Pompeii, depicting women actively shopping and interacting in the forum, challenges the perception that Roman men solely shaped the archaeological record.

The film is accompanied by a teacher’s pack that includes a range of activities that can be used in the classroom. The film is narrated by Ray Laurence, Professor of Ancient History at Macquarie University, and is animated by the award-winning animation studio, Cognitive.
