When in Rome …

A new exhibit at the Houston Museum of Natural Science: Imperial Rome. I went to the media preview last week; the lines were long at the buffet and the bar (with men (and women!) in Roman soldier costumes roaming the area), so my son and I went straight to the exhibit.

Lots of busts of emperors, statues and figurines of various gods, household items (including a full sized dining area), trade goods, and items related to death. Good explanations of most items.
