Pompeii

Pompeii

Archaeological excavations in Pompeii have returned the remains of the ancient city of Pompeii buried under a blanket of ash and lapilli during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79. Most of the recovered artefacts are preserved at the archaeological museum in Naples and in small quantities also in the Antiquarium of Pompeii.

The finds following the excavations, started at the behest of Charles III of Bourbon, are one of the best testimonies of Roman life, as well as the best preserved city of that era. In 1997, to preserve integrity, the ruins, managed by the Pompeii Superintendent, became part of the UNESCO World Heritage List.
