Pompeii is a ruined and partially buried Roman settlement near Naples in the region of Campania. Along with Herculaneum, Pompeii was destroyed and completely buried during the catastrophic eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius spanning two days, August 24th and 25th in 79 AD. The eruption buried Pompeii under 4 to 6 meters of ash and pumice, and it was lost for nearly 1,600 years before its accidental rediscovery around 1592. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire.
