A visitor walks past fresco featuring a phoenix that was painted on the outside wall of a taverna in Pompeii, the Roman town that was partially destroyed in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79, during the press preview for the 'Life and Death Pompeii and Herculaneum' exhibition at the British Museum in central London on March 26, 2013. Pompeii and Herculaneum were both devestated when the eruption of Vesuvius buried the towns in ash and pumice leaving many victims in situ. Preserved frescoes reveal details about 1st century Roman culture. AFP PHOTO / CARL COURT (Photo credit should read CARL COURT/AFP/Getty Images)
