Caption: Archaeological excavation in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii in southern Italy. In the first century A.D. Pompeii was a flourishing coastal resort 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. Vesuvius, which reaches an elevation of 1200 metres, last erupted in 1944.
