Caption: House of the Deer, Herculaneum. This Roman villa in the ancient Italian town has been excavated and restored. It was once a luxurious residence, taking its name from two marble statues found in the garden of deer being attacked by dogs. The grand entrance is shown here. Herculaneum was destroyed in the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 AD. However, the thick layer of volcanic ash that buried the town preserved buildings, bodies and other artefacts.
