Caption: Roman street. Surface of a preserved street in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, southern Italy. Deep ruts, carved by the passage of wagon wheels over many years, are seen on the road surface. Pompeii, situated on the lower slopes of the volcano Mount Vesuvius, was populated by wealthy Romans. It was demolished in AD 79 by an eruption of Vesuvius that covered the city in wet ashes and cinders. Many buildings and other structures were well preserved and have been revealed by a series of excavations.
