The citizens of Pompeii immortalized sometimes mundane but fascinating details of their lives in the graffiti they left behind. We will encourage passersby to view books and other handouts on graffiti at Pompeii and then record their own graffiti on a provided sheet of cardboard or poster paper. This graffiti will be inspired by the graffiti found at Pompeii, yet will be about the authors' lives and experiences at the University of Florida. Read more »
