View towards northeast. Unlike Pompeii, Herculaneum was not destroyed by ash falls due to the 23 November 79 AD eruption of Mount Vesuvius, but was deeply covered by pyroclastic surges during the following night. Many features were not destroyed, but preserved and then excavated since the 18th Century.
