Caption: Roman ruins. Excavated pedestrian crossing in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii in southern Italy. There were no sewers in Pompeii, so sewage ran down the streets. Raised stones allowed residents to cross the streets between the raised pavements without stepping in the sewage. In the first century AD Pompeii was a flourishing coastal resort populated by wealthy Romans. It was decimated in AD 79 by an eruption of Mount 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.
