The eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD buried the town of Pompeii in ash and captured a moment in time. Under the ash everything remained as it was at the time of the eruption. Artwork was preserved, buildings remained, artifacts protected. Here are a few glimpses at the place that once was home to 20,000 Pompeian residents.
