11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sept. 14, 28. The volcanic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD buried the Villa dei Papiri (Villa of Papyruses) and carbonized papyrus book scrolls housed in its enormous library. At this drop-in program, you can discover how the ancient Romans used the mighty papyrus plant to make paper and then write, roll, and seal your own message on papyrus for future generations. The workshop, which takes place on Outer Peristyle at the Getty Villa, complements the exhibition, “Buried by Vesuvius: Treasures from the Villa dei Papiri.”
