Pompeii was a Roman city located a few miles southeast of Naples at the base of Mt. Vesuvius. The eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 A.D. buried Pompeii in a mix of ash and rock. Pompeii's existence was lost to history until the 18th century. Pompeii was destroyed in such a way that the city was in essence frozen in time and remained untouched by the elements for centuries. The discovery of Pompeii has proven to be an important source of information about the nature of a Roman city and its inhabitants.
