Pompeii | Casa della Fontana Piccola
thumb

The Roman town of Pompeii, including most of its inhabitants, was buried under a several metres thick layer of tephra in the afternoon of 23 November 79 AD, after the plume emitted by a massive eruption of Mount Vesuvius had collapsed. Despite massive destruction, many features - including mosaics, wall paintings and further details - have been preserved in the underground for almost two millennia.
