Caption: Bronze Age pottery. Archaeologist uncovering the volcanic mud and ash cast of a Bronze Age furnace. An item of pottery is seen inside the furnace, preserved in the act of being fired. Around 3500 years ago, a large eruption of Vesuvius destroyed this Bronze Age village. The volcanic mud and ash preserved the shape of the wooden buildings, along with their contents, in the same way as at Pompeii over a thousand years later. The site was discovered in 2001 at Nola, near Naples, Italy. Excavations have uncovered several huts, tools, pottery, and ornaments made from the tusks of wild boar.
