Pompeii and Herculaneum


What historical period interests you?


Pompeii and Herculaneum and the Ancient #Roman lifestyle, is both historically #mesmerising yet expressively #poignant.


#Romans took great pride in lavishing their homes, from intricate #mosaic decors to extravagant garden #sculptures. However when Mount Vesuvius erupted in AD79, it wiped out this heritage and civilisation. With 250°C hot surges travelling 30m every second, its people were killed instantly. Astonishingly, human corpses were sealed in ash and resin; the preserved skeleton of the ‘resin woman’ is palpable.


Thanks to #Pliny the Younger, a Pompeian citizen who kept a diary record of the #eruption, #historians were able to retrace the #ruined cities and rewrite its #antiquity. The Romans, having lived a life of #pleasure and relative modernity (water piping from a complex system as well as early structures of kitchen stoves), their homes were the prototypes of the modern day society known today. This, in addition to the ubiquitous human nature, means that the ancient cities are #UNESCO World #Heritage Sites visited by circa 2.5 million visitors per year.
