The Last Days of Pompeii


Pompeii and many villas in the surrounding area, were mostly destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 meters of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The eruption was cataclysmic for the town. The objects that lay beneath the city have been well preserved for thousands of years because of the lack of air and moisture. These artifacts provide an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city during the Pax Romana. During the excavation, plaster was used to fill in the voids between the ash layers that once held human bodies. This allowed one to see the exact position the person was in when they died.(wikipedia) / MÖ 79 yılında Vezüv yanardağından püsküren lavların 4-6 metre yüksekliğinde bir örtü oluşturduğu Pompei kentinde canlı cansız herşey taşa dönüşmüş NAPLES Slide-Dia (1992)
